8:42 pm on 21 December 2015

Police are asking people not to take the law into their own hands after a Waikato woman attempted to block two burglars getting away from her farm.

The woman returned home from morning milking over the weekend to find two men stealing petrol from a storage shed.

Inspector Nalia Hassan told Checkpoint she tried to block the driveway with her quad bike, but the men rammed it and got away.

The woman, who had been on the quad bike at the time, was not injured.
