Human Aid Focus NZ's Robert Scott says he found the charity's van in pieces at Palmy Auto Parts four working days after it was stolen. A Palmerston North charity is without a vehicle after its van was stolen and sold to an auto-wreckers, which promptly cut it to pieces, disregarding pawnbroker legislation. Instead, he drove it straight to Palmy Auto Parts and sold it, the charity says. When the man didn't return the vehicle after his interview and could only offer inconsistent accounts about what happened, the charity reported the van stolen, Scott said. Four working days later, her husband Robert Scott found the van in pieces at Palmy Auto Parts' Keith St yard.
