On January 19, a 19-year-old Oneroa man and a 22-year- old Ostend man were arrested after warrants of arrest were issued from the Auckland District Court for failing to appear. On January 23, a 22-year-old Blackpool man was arrested for intentional damage after a domestic-related incident. Drink driver A 16-year-old youth was found to be more than four times over the legal limit for his age when he was stopped and breathalysed on Nikau Rd on Monday morning. His breath alcohol level was 627mcg -- the legal limit is 150mcg. Happy people Waiheke police would like to thank all the people who have handed items in that they have found. ''We have had some really happy people reunited with their belongings,'' a police spokesperson says. Still to be claimed are a selection of rings ''that will be special to those who have lost them''. One is engraved with ''Georgini''. There are also fishing rods, a man's watch and a camera. Police are looking for another camera lost over last weekend. ''I have an owner who would love to have it back due to the special photos on it,'' the spokesperson says. Some Topp fun ahead Great atmosphere: Cable Bay Vineyards is expecting 1500 punters to enjoy some 'topp fun' at the Topp Twins concert this Saturday. By GEORGE GARDNER THE ISLAND is bracing itself for numbers to swell by the thousands as fun lovers flock to the island for three big events on Anniversary weekend. Saturday is set to be the busiest day with the Topp Twins' Summer Hoe Down at Cable Bay Vineyards, High- life Entertainment's Fiesta del Sol at Stonyridge Vine- yard, and the first weekend day of the 2011 headland- Sculpture on the Gulf exhi- bition expected to attract up to 6500 people. Headland director Juliet Monaghan says 2000 are predicted to take the walk on every weekend day during the exhibition, which runs until February 20. We expect up to 30,000 for the entire event,'' she says. Cable Bay Vineyards' spokesman Jeremy Burn says the venue is expecting over 1500 punters on Saturday, but says crowds shouldn't be an issue. Last year we found the greater majority of concert- goers were people already on the island, either staying on Waiheke or local residents. It's also more of a late afternoon, early evening con- cert and it will be over by 9pm, which helps. By nature of the type of crowd the Topp Twins draw, we certainly had no problems last year. It was a great atmosphere.'' Stonyridge general man- ager David Jackson echoes that sentiment, saying although the Fiesta del Sol event, featuring international DJ Roger Sanchez, is expected to draw 3000 guests, it typically attracts a more mature audience''. New Year's Eve was a fan- tastic event and great for the island, and we're looking for- ward to a more relaxed Auck- land Anniversary weekend,'' he says. Mr Jackson says Fullers is putting on an extra 1am and 2am boat to ferry people home, and Waiheke Execu- tive Transport is bringing over nine full-size buses from the mainland to get vineyard guests back to the boats. We expect around 50 percent to stay on the island for the long weekend, though, so we will have smaller shuttles running people to their Waiheke accommo- dation.'' Mr Jackson is expecting the event to have sold out by today, but those wanting to find out if there are any last- minute tickets left should phone Stonyridge on 372-8822. For Topp Twins dinner packages phone Cable Bay Vineyards on 372-5889 or for concert tickets go to www.tic ketdirect.co.nz, or phone 0800-224-224. Headland opens to the public this Friday at 9am, but full information can be found at www.sculptureon thegulf.co.nz or turn to pages 4 and 5 for more information. All's well after five-year-old sneaks off to beach An intensive search by the police helicopter Eagle, vol- unteer fire brigade and members of the public was successful in locating a miss- ing five-year-old on Monday evening. The youngster had taken himself off to the beach for a swim, a police spokesperson says. Unfortunately he had omitted to tell his mother where he was going.'' When his disappearance was noticed, police were called and the Eagle was brought into action circling above Blackpool, Burrell Rd and Surfdale for approximately 30 minutes. Off-duty officers joined in the search along with volunteers from the Waiheke Fire Brigade and members of the community. The police spokesperson says the youngster was found safe and well -- just a little cold''. The help from the fire brigade and members of the public in the search was very much appreciated,'' the spokesperson says.
