Two arrests, $100k in stolen goods recovered after investigation

More than $100,000 in stolen goods has been recovered and two people arrested following an investigation into burglaries in Auckland earlier this year.

The Auckland Central Tactical Crime Unit has been investigating robberies at downtown Auckland designer stores on 28 January and 21 February.

Police have now arrested a man and a woman.

The investigation led police to Dunedin, where a 39-year-old man was arrested.

He has been charged with two burglaries and an attempted burglary, and is due to appear in the Dunedin District Court today.

In Auckland, a 31-year-old woman has also been arrested and charged with two counts of receiving stolen property.

“In addition to this arrest, police have recovered more than $100,000 worth of luxury goods that had been taken in those burglaries,” Detective Senior Sergeant Salton said in a statement.

“Our investigation into the burglaries continue and we cannot rule out further arrests or charges being laid.”

The woman has appeared in the Auckland District Court and is next due to appear on 20 June.
