On Thursday afternoon there was a burglary at a local address. An alert person saw the vehicle leaving, took down the registration number and called Police immediately on 111.
At the time, Waiuku and Pukekohe units tried to locate the vehicle, however, the occupants of the vehicle knew they had been seen and went into hiding.
On Friday morning Waiuku Police and the Pukekohe Tactical Crime Unit executed a Search Warrant at a local address. Some of the property taken in the burglary was recovered and a 22 year old female was arrested for burglary and appeared in Court on Saturday morning. Further persons are to be spoken to regarding this, as she did not act alone.
