Gisborne Police loses Taser
Eastern Police Bulletin: Sunday, 6 November 2016 – 1:19pm
Gisborne Police are asking the public to locate a Police issued Taser that their star officer lost while on duty last night.
“It is believed the Taser and holster may have become dislodged from the officer’s belt clip [and the imbecile didn’t notice] when he attended a fireworks related incident on Waikanae beach near Peppers/Midway Surf Club at approximately 10pm.”
“This is an incident that we are taking seriously, and we acknowledge the potential risk that could be posed if the Taser ends up in the wrong hands,” says Tairawhiti Area Commander, Detective Inspector “Sam” Aberahama.
“We are satisfied that we have done everything we can to try and find the Taser, we believe it was lost sometime between 10pm and 12:30am.
“We would like to advise the public that the Taser is a restricted weapon and maintaining possession of it may constitute an offence. If you come across it please call 111 immediately so local Police can recover it safely.”
We are also seeking the public’s assistance in locating the Taser, if anyone has seen or knows where it may be they should call their local Police or report anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

Environment Southland is investigating, having earlier said a “significant volume” of effluent went into the waterway on October 20.
Environment Southland did not name the farmer involved, but on Sunday Baird confirmed the spill occurred from his farm. http://www.stuff.co.nz/national/86114383/significant-effluent-spill-from-farm-owned-by-southland-fed-farmers-boss
