Property worth thousands of dollars has been taken in two large burglaries in the Tauranga suburb of Greerton in the last 24 hours.
Police report offenders have stolen large amounts of property including a truck and car from two Greerton properties.
The first burglary was in an industrial site in Alach Street where offenders forced entry into the premises and took a white coloured Toyota Dyna truck, registration number BTH255 and a large amount of tools.
The tools included single phase welders, new TIG welders, small plasma cutters, sanders, grinders, drills, computers and flat screen televisions.
The second burglary was in Kiteroa Street where offenders entered the house and took household items including televisions, a washing machine and a white Mitsubishi Galant with the registration number YZ2492.
Senior Sergeant Lew Warner says a lot of planning has been involved in the burglaries and the offenders appear to have targeted a large amount of specialised items.
He says it is likely the offenders will try to sell some of the stolen property at deflated prices and reminds people if it sounds too good, it probably is.
Police would like to hear from anyone who has seen any suspicious activity in and around Alach Street and Kiteroa Street in the past few days.
Lew would also like to hear from anyone who has seen the Toyota Dyna truck or Mitsubishi Galant.
He says this is an important reminder people should secure their keys inside premises where they cannot be accessed.
It is also a reminder that if people see any suspicious behaviour they should report it to Police.
