    And in The Herald’s Today’s Major Crimes Headlines department:


    A 36-year-old woman allegedly made off with a small amount of cash from a donation box at the Museum of New Zealand,

    “A woman has been charged with theft after allegedly stealing money from a donation box at Te Papa.

    A police spokesperson said about 12.30pm today a female smashed the glass donation box inside the entrance to the National Museum in Wellington and made off with a small amount of cash.

    “The 36-year-old was quickly caught up with by security and faces charges of wilful damage and theft,” police said.”
    . . . . . . . .
    As we probably all know what Te Papa looks like and there are no pics of the offender, the donation box, or the policepersons, I’m assuming one of those taxis was the getaway car.
