“Today we have executed five warrants in Counties Manukau and one in Northland, which has resulted in the apprehension of three young people.

“We have charged two 15-year-olds with burglary and unlawfully takes, with a third young person being referred to Youth Aid.”

The two 15-year-olds will appear each in the Manukau and Whangārei Youth Courts.

In total six arrest warrants were executed in relation to the 26 April early morning incident.

“Additionally, investigators have summonsed a 22-year-old man to the Manukau District Court as part of our enquiries,” Bright said.
