Three tickets sold in Whangarei, two in Warkworth, and one each from Wellsford, Kaitaia and Mangonui each won $5000 in the draw. The winning Lotto numbers were: 1, 3, 8, 14, 26 and 30, the bonus 34 and Powerball 10. The Lotto Strike numbers were: 26, 1, 8 and 30.
Three youngsters suspected of shoplifting from the Factorie clothing store in Whangarei's Cameron St mall ran out of the shop at 5.40pm on Saturday, heading toward Rathbone St. A member of the public caught two of the trio, both 13-year-old girls, and held them until police arrived. Sergeant Craig Burrows said police still want to talk to the third suspect, a boy believed to be about the same age as the girls.
