Auckland community leaders are disappointed, but “not surprised” by figures showing an increase in dairy and convenience store burglaries, Stuff reports, after a spate of raids over the past few days. St Heliers, Glendowie, Howick and Pakuranga were among suburbs in east Auckland that saw a variety of small businesses targeted for break-ins and burglaries. Simon O’Connor, National MP for Tamaki has been outspoken against the large number of small business crimes in his electorate, with a dozen businesses being ram-raided by offenders over last year.
