The Star Latest Christchurch news at Thursday February 15 2018 15 News Pensioner tricked; house burgled • By Sophie Cornish AN ELDERLY woman was tricked into handing over keys to a campervan, which was then used in a burglary to “completely clear out” a North New Brighton home. Ina Livingston, 89, felt something was not right when she was persuaded to give the keys to her daughter and son-in-law’s campervan. Mrs Livingston was told by the man in his 20s, who knocked on her door, that Peter, Mrs Livingston’s son-in-law, said he could borrow the van. He persisted, coming back a second time to say he’d just been on the phone with Peter, who said he could take the van. Mrs Livingston and her daughter Leslie are unsure how the man knew Peter’s name. Within two hours of the van being stolen, it was used in a burglary of a house in Royalist Ave, North New Brighton. The burglars were there for 40min. Homeowner Shane Aitcheson said everything that could be taken, was taken. “The whole place was a rubbish tip, they had not left one thing unturned or looked at. They had gone through the fridge, freezer, the pantry; they had taken the dirty washing. They took everything.” He believes belongings to the value of $20,000 were taken, including snowboard, surfing equipment, power tools and all of their clothing. “Imagine you don’t have any more clothes,” said Mr Aitcheson, who had to buy new clothes for work on Monday. A neighbour witnessed the campervan entering the property and another neighbour caught CCTV footage of the van on the street. To make matters worse, a dispute with their insurance company means Mr Aitcheson and his partner are not likely to receive contents insurance, STOLEN: Leslie and her husband Peter with their van Lucy which was stolen after Leslie’s elderly mother was tricked into handing over the keys. It was caught on CCTV in Royalist Ave prior to a burglary. when they were told they were covered. They are now seeking legal advice. Police have taken fingerprints and said there are no confirmed sightings of the van yet. There is no connection between the two parties. Leslie said the van, named Lucy, was “like a moving bach” to her and her husband. “We’re really attached to it . . . we go away in it all the time, it was stocked with food, dishes, bedding, our tramping boots, books.” Local News Now • By Bridget Rutherford Fire rages, homes at risk Casino drives 157-space car park plan CHRISTCHURCH Casino plans to transform an empty central city site into a temporary 157-space car park to service its patrons and nearby businesses. It has applied to the city council for resource consent to landscape and operate the car park at 56-72 Salisbury St, next to the temporary one at 373 Durham St North. It will back onto the casino’s current car park on Peterborough St. The casino bought the vacant land in September from the Martin Coffey Estate for $3.7 million. It is seeking consent to operate the car park for five years until a future use for the site is determined. In its resource consent application, the casino said the temporary car park would cater for its customers, and spaces would be leased to nearby businesses. Some spaces would be available for public use. It has also lodged resource consent with the city council to develop a 200-room hotel, with a car park, eateries, conference space and shops on the Peterborough St car park site.
