Police are working to track down the people who carried out a burglary at an east Auckland residential property while its occupants were at home.

And investigators want to hear from anyone who may have information that helps them to solve the crime.

A Counties Manukau Police spokesperson says police are making enquiries following a “burglary incident” carried out in Flat Bush on August 28.

“At about 9.30pm police received a report from a member of the public who reported unknown individuals were inside their address on Carlos Drive,” the spokesperson told the Times.

“The individuals are reported to have fled the property, having taken a number of items with them.

“Police arrived to the scene a short time later and carried out an area canvas, however no persons were located.”

Police are carrying out follow-up enquiries into the incident and anyone with information is asked to phone police on 105 and quote the file number 210829/7589.

Alternatively, phone the free and anonymous Crimestoppers tip-off line on 0800 555 111.

Police are also investigating an incident in which a man allegedly presented a knife at several people at an east Auckland beach.

A spokesperson for Counties Manukau Police says police received a report about events that unfolded on the afternoon of August 30 at Eastern Beach.

“The incident related to two couples who became involved in a verbal altercation after their respective dogs had an altercation between them.

“During the verbal altercation, which occurred around 5.30pm, one of the males is reported to have presented a small knife, before then leaving the scene.

“The identity of this person isn’t known at this time, however anyone who saw this incident or has any information about the persons involved is asked to contact police on 105, quoting file 210831/2945.”
