Another Car Jacking, This Time in Opunake

There’s been another armed car-jacking in New Zealand, this is how the Herald reported it

 Two 18-year-old Opunake teenagers allegedly tried to steal a car armed with a knife early yesterday.

The two, Tyler Fransen and Maku Temaire, appeared in the New Plymouth District Court at noon wearing white police overalls.

Judge Allan Roberts acknowledged the police were opposed to bail but because of their young age he released the two on strict bail conditions including a night-time curfew. Neither are allowed to enter Opunake nor associate with one another.

Alcohol and illegal drugs are banned. Both were remanded to appear on January 6.

Changes in the way police record crime have caused the number of crimes to drop in New Zealand, however we see no evidence of this. Our readers frequently report that crime is on the rise.

This latest car-jacking follows a previous hold-up in the affluent North Shore region of Auckland on 1/12/2013.
