Kia Ora James
Request for Information
Thank you for your Official Information Act 1982 (OIA) request of 30 September 2023 in which you
sought information relating to ram raids in the Huntly area.
Are Police investigating any cases of a vehicle striking a house (ram raid) in the Huntly area
that occurred between 31st of August 2023 and 30 September 2023?
If yes, please state the date(s) of the incident.
I have completed the relevant checks in the Police National Intel igence Application (NIA) and have
not been able to locate any offences involving vehicles striking houses or commercial properties in a
ram raid style burglary. Therefore, your request is refused pursuant to s18e of the OIA, in that the
document al eged to contain the information requested does not exist or, despite reasonable efforts to
locate it, cannot be found.
Should you have further information on a specific incident and have a Police file and/or event number
please submit a new OIA request with this information.
You have the right to ask the Ombudsman to review my decision if you are not satisfied with Police’s
response to your request. Information about how to make a complaint is available at:
