Riding for the Disabled now worse off

The Herald reports:

Two people who stole a charity donation box from a Hastings petrol station have been described as the “lowest of the low” by police.

Security camera footage taken at the Heretaunga St business on January 11 shows two people approaching the counter and asking to buy cigarettes.


While the attendant’s back is turned, one takes a donation box for Riding for the Disabled off the counter and stuffs it inside his hoodie.  

He stands behind the first person, who completes the purchase of the cigarettes, and they walk out of the service station.

Inspector Andy Sloan described the theft as brazen and disgraceful.

“Stealing a charity donation box is the lowest of the low. You can’t go much lower than that and these people obviously have no scruples or morals whatsoever,” he said.

It was not known how much money was inside the box.

Anyone with information about the people in the footage should contact Hawkes Bay Police on 06 8310700, or Crimestoppers, anonymously, on 0800 555 111.

If you know about these people, you know what to do.

    Great photo, shouldn’t be long before someone turns them in. Hopefully the media ramps this up big time & the public humiliation is huge – because the courts will do naff all about it. They will probably get a group cuddle & have to sing 3 koombyas

    What a surprise, they both have very good suntans!

  • You will be pleased to know that the “two males” have been apprehended… https://www.facebook.com/HawkesBayPolice/posts/473614096009100

      That’s gold…confirms for me they are in fact a couple of cock smokers.

        Cant be, because according to Kosh/Gayguy/Teachers Rock all gay people are fantastically good and would never do anything bad.

      LOL – the one in pink is a dude!

        well, the jury might still be out on it as a exclamation .. ..

      Garth McVicar tried to warn us. Gay lib has its unintended consequences. Cops are aware of the connection, and poofter penchant for crime.

  • Sarrs

    Good god, there’s never likely to be more than $20 in those things. Why steal it and make yourself a nationally ridiculed tool? FFS the smokes there were buying probably cost more than was in the donation box.

    • stinkeye3

      Maybe they used the money to feed their children?


  • Cadwallader

    Pleased the cops got them. Perhaps they could arrange (forgive the pun) A Hiding Until They’re Disabled?”

    I’m trying to work out what the thing on our left is. The thing in the pink top. Are the cops looking for a female? Or a poof? A poof would’s steal would they? Don’t start me.

      Oh well at least we know it isn’t gayguy dotcom, isn’t wearing a wedding dress.

      • dotcom

        Roaring with laughter Cows.
        That laughed, looks like a potential Gayguy wedding dress to me. Nah, traditionally, white for virgins, pink for used, red for well used.

  • Thank goodness that the police have caught these scumbags; lock ’em up and throw away the key. Hopefully they’ll appear before Judge Adeane, he who locks up taggers.

      and soon they will be able to get married and adopt an “apprentice” scumbag!

    • cows4me

      Maybe the learned judge will give them a month of picking up the horseshit at RFD.

    • Callum

      Adeane has gone soft, the fucking PANSY was saying it was unfair to ban a drunk driver cumulatively for 12 months and it was innevitable he would be caught driving disqualified. Take your sentence seriously and you won’t get caught driving while disqualified, bloody idiot. No doubt the guy was driving the whole time and just happened to get caught in the second six months rather the the first.

  • disqus_CYaCVLLRTy

    Even the Herald is confused! AT the beginning they talk about a man and a women, a few sentences later it is two males :-)

    • dotcom

      I suspect the thing in pink might be equally confused. Will I be boy or girl today? Will I be the dungeon or the dragon today?

        Hope the ‘boys’ in the nick get to read the Herald. There’ll be some queue-jostling for a shower room date with Pinky.

    A careful check on their residency status is to be hoped for. Deportation is highly desirable.
