A set of swings stolen from a Taumarunui park were found when police executed search warrants in the area, that also uncovered firearms, drugs and cash. The Cherry Grove Park swings went missing earlier this year, with the council initially offering an amnesty before a reward was offered. Karen Ngatai is the Ruapehu deputy Mayor and chairperson of the Taumarunui/Ohura ward and she ran our producer Lydia Batham through the events.
