Three Thugs have been arrested and charged following a series of Napier burglaries during November and December of 2020.

It was reported that the three Thugs targeted building materials.

Authorities executed search warrants on January 14 in the Eskdale and Bayview areas. Following the warrants, a number were executed at the same addresses during late December of 2020.

A large amount of the materials were seized and recovered due to the search warrants being executed.

Building companies who fell victim to the burglaries had their materials returned.

A 49-year-old man was charged with four counts of burglary, and four counts of receiving property.

A 35-year-old man was charged with five counts of burglary, and a 48-year-old man has been charged with receiving property.

All three Thugs are due to appear in Napier District Court on January 20.

The story title does not fit the story, Three Thugs, what have they done that means they are thugs? Burglars are *****, we all know that, but thuggery is a different type of buggery, it involves violence and intimidation.
Cheers,

Jonny [former thug and enforcer]
