Counties Manukau Police com- munications manager Kimberley Mathews says the investigation stems from an incident at Botany Town Centre on April 4. “A man attempted to sell some jewellery at Gold Buyers in Bot- any,” she says. “People working at the store suspected the jewellery was stolen and confronted the man about it. “He then fed the store, leaving behind the jewellery and his driv- er’s licence. “This strange behaviour was enough to lead police to believe the staff members’ suspicions were probably accurate.” Police have been unable to iden- tify the owner of the jewellery the man left behind while feeing and haven’t received any reports sug- gesting it was stolen. They’ve been unable also to get helpful information from the man who tried to sell the items at Gold Buyers. “Police are looking for anyone to come forward who is able to iden- tify the jewellery to confrm it was stolen and return it to its rightful owner,” says Ms Mathews. “The unique jewellery includes a brooch and bracelet that are very distinctive. “The coin brooch is inscribed on its back. Police believe the four pieces were probably taken during one incident.” People with information on the four pieces of jewellery a man tried to sell at Gold Buyers in Bot- any Town Centre on April 4 can phone constable Raphael Prince, of Counties Manukau East Police, on 250-2800, or the free and anon- ymous Crimestoppers tip-off line on 0800-555-111, with the refer- ence number 130405/9546. Police want to nd the owner of these four pieces of jewellery that a man tried to sell in Botany on April 4.

The performers’ new show is entitled If You’re Irish, come into the parlour!, and plays at the Picton Centre in Picton Street, Howick, on November 12. It features the talents of award- winning Kiwi fddler Marian Burns, among other well-known musicians.

People are invited to wear something green and get along to the concert, which features a selection of favourite Irish songs, including Phil the Fluter’s Ball, That’s an Irish Lullaby and McNamara’s Band. Joining Burns on stage are Operatunity director John Cameron, guest artists Alex Milligan, Ben McDonald and Imogen Thirlwall and an Irish band. Burns and her beloved violin have for years been fddling their jolly way around the world from Europe to the United States and everywhere in between. Included among her past accolades are winning the prestigious Variety Artists Club of New Zealand’s Benny Award and being named best fddler as a soloist at this year’s Golden Fiddle Awards in Australia.
