Waikato Police Arrest Man In Relation To A Series Of Property Damage Offences
Police have arrested a 19-year-old man in relation to a range of offending in
the Te Pahu and Te Kawa areas.
The man was allegedly involved in eight
incidents in early September and one
at the beginning of August.
He is expected to appear in Te
Awamutu District Court on 14 October 2021
charges including burglary, arson and destruction of property.
Further charges are under consideration.
All outstanding property has been
recovered and Police would like to thank
the Te Pahu and Te Kawa communities for information leading to this arrest.
“Rural support officers helped liaise with
these rural communities and
identify successful lines of inquiry which lead to this arrest,” Waikato
West Area Response Manager Acting Senior Sergeant Scott Mckenzie.
“It highlights the value
our rural support officers have in keeping a
link with our more-isolated communities.”
Police take offending such as this
seriously and would like to reassure
smaller communities that we will investigate and hold those responsible to
