A man suspected of committing offences against tourist accommodation providers in the Taupo area has been arrested.

As a result of publicity, a member of the public spotted someone fitting the description of 44-year-old Tony Ashley Gorrie in Taupo last night.

He was quickly arrested and will appear in court today facing a number of burglary and fraud charges.

Police would like to thank the media and the social media community for their assistance in circulating this appeal.
