A GISBORNE security company alerted police to a group of people who appeared to be breaking into cars at Gisborne Airport at about 1am on Saturday.

Police, with help from the security firm, took four youths into custody. They ranged in age from 14 to 16.

They made appearances in court on Saturday and yesterday.

Police allege that about seven cars were broken into and items that were easily carried away were targeted.

“We would like to thank the security firm for their vigilance. Also, the Gisborne airport cutting edge CCTV and security measures should be praised,” police said.

In a separate incident, four youths were spoken to by police for breaking into a car in the Whataupoko area on Friday night.

“We remind people to take any valuables from their cars and ensure that they are locked.”
