There was a special presentation in the Papakura Court to a Justice of the Peace, F.T. Snell when a constable returned Mr Snell’s medallion which had been missing for 9 years. He revealed he lost it while pheasant shooting near Tokoroa. The finder, seeing Mr Snell’s name engraved on the back, traced him to Papakura and posted it to the local police station.
