The Cook Islands Police Service had a relatively quiet weekend, attending only a handful of minor incidents.

 

On Friday, a tourist reported his camera had been stolen from the beach in Rutaki. Police officers were also called to a domestic dispute in Arorangi that day. They are investigating both incidents.

On Saturday, police were alerted to a bush fire in O’oa. It is believed the fire was close to a house, but was extinguished by fire services before being able to cause any damage.

Police also attended the reported theft of a motorcycle on Sunday, only to discover that a family member of the complainant had in fact removed the vehicle. No charges were laid against the person.

The body of a five-metre-long Cuvier’s beaked whale was reported washed up near Vaimaanga on Sunday morning. 

Also on Sunday, two people were arrested and charged with contempt of court after breaching their bail conditions. On Sunday night a woman riding a motorcycle collided with a dog in Panama. She was hospitalised after receiving unspecified injuries. The woman’s current condition is unknown.
