Dargaville Police have arrested a man in connection with the robbery of four Irish tourists earlier this week.
The 26-year-old man, who was arrested in Auckland last night, will appear in the Manukau District Court today facing charges of aggravated robbery and arson.
At approximately 12.30 am on Monday October 27, two men presented a firearm at four Irish tourists and demanded the keys to their rental van.
The two males drove off in the van which had a substantial amount of property inside, including generators and water blasters.
Some of the property has been found and Police are still searching for the second offender.
The tourists have left the country.
