We blogged a wee while ago about Homepaddock's stolen laptop, and the excellent efforts of the Police to recover it. We're delighted to advise that this story has had a happy ending, and that Ele and her computer will shortly have an emotional reunion!
But Ele has a dilemma now; does she "let it go", or does she press charges, which will result in the offender likely facing diversion. She's asked for help from the blogosphere, and we have obliged; please consider doing likewise. FWIW, we think that the offender should be made to suffer some consequences.
In the meantime, let's give the Police a pat on the back for some good, old-fashioned investigative work. It's all too easy to slag the Police off when things go pear-shaped, but it's great to have the opportunity to praise them for a job well done. We extend that praise to the constable who attended our recent incident; he was a fine advertsement for the NZ Police.
