Reti reacts to ram raid spread
Whangarei-based National list MP Shane Reti says ram raids aren’t just an Auckland problem.
He says they’re also happening in Whangarei, including one that involved four cars and 14 youths.
“So this was a really organised event and there’s a real concern without CBD retailers around the number of ram raids and the amount of crime, particularly youth crime, here in the city so I’ve actually got quite a few meetings and chatting with businesses, working with Chamber of Commerce, working with Police, working with City Safe and working with some of the principals of the schools about what’s required,” Dr Reti says.
