For many years has been drawing attention to crime against tourists, students and migrants in New Zealand.

Now we’re asking for your help to bring some of the alleged perpetrators to justice and assist with returning $15,000 of possessions. You may even earn yourself a $3,000 reward if you help to return Nathan Merryfield’s stolen Mackbook laptop to him.

Nathan Merryfield, from Worcester in the United Kingdom, was in the South Island travelling with four friends when their rental van was broken into and their valuables stolen the night before they were due to head back to Auckland.

The incident happened as the group were out drinking at a Christchurch bar. The van was parked in a nearby lot in the city centre.

“We came back around 2am, and I was on my own at the start… and I just saw all of my clothes scattered around the side of the van,” said Mr Merryfield. “I thought, OK, something’s not right. I opened the door … and saw five full bags had all gone.”

Mr Merryfield, who is spending six months studying at the Unitec Institute of Technology in Mt Albert, said the thieves had broken into the van through the driver’s side window.

Among the items stolen was the 20-year-old’s Macbook laptop, which contained two years of his university work and all the photos he had taken in New Zealand. Without the university work, he said, he would be unable to pass his degree.

Now the desperate Briton is offering the $3000 reward for the return of the laptop.

“If I don’t get it back then I basically don’t pass university. Nothing is backed up on my Mac either because we had no internet. There were personal photos as well of me and my family which I can’t get back.”…source

So far only a stolen camera has been recovered, from which pictures of two young men have been uploaded to Facebook by a friend of Nathan’s.

  1. A quick, lame question. Given that so many New Zealanders hate the United States, what is with the little Oliver Twisted wearing a Chicago Bulls knitted hat? Why Feed- The- Beast? You know, Da’ Bulls will just use that money to further colonize poor New Zealand, and next up, some poor sot will be wearing Cubs gear. I mean, if you are going to be Anti- American, go all out.
