Police arrested seven people between last Friday and Monday.


The incidents which led to the arrests reflected a range of ongoing issues which officers face on Rarotonga each day, said police spokesman Trevor Pitt.

On Sunday, two males were apprehended for being in contempt of court orders, and a third was in the police lock-up on a charge of being unlawfully found.

Early on Saturday morning a female visitor was arrested on a charge of dangerous driving, and appeared in court that day. She received a suspended sentence after pleading guilty.

On Friday, three people were processed on charges relating to separate incidents involving burglary, common assault, and unlawful taking.

In other weekend incidents, the theft of a bag from Muri Beach was reported to the police.

Six visitors, all of them driving white scooters, were stopped by police in town yesterday morning and warned for dangerous driving.

Two minor road accidents occurred – one on Saturday night at Takuvaine where a motorbike driver crashed but got back on his bike and drove off; and earlier at Arorangi where a motorbike driver hit a dog and sustained minor injuries.
