Police have arrested and charged one person following a burglary at a construction site in Henderson last night.
Police were notified of a person unlawfully entering a commercial building site on Millbrook Rd at about 12.40pm.
A remote motion detection camera onsite was activated and sent an alert to the property manager, who contacted Police immediately.
Senior Sergeant Damian Albert, Response Manager, Waitemata West, says Police searched the site and found the offender hiding in an onsite portaloo.
“He’s certainly found himself in a very interesting position,” Senior Sergeant Albert says.
“But in all seriousness, this is a great example of exceptional Police work. We located and apprehended the offender in a timely manner and he will be held to account for his actions.”
The construction site had also been the target of a burglary three weeks earlier, in which thousands of dollars’ worth of tools were taken.
Police are yet to determine if the two burglaries are linked.
A 22-year-old man appeared in Waitakere District Court today charged with unlawfully being on a property and a warrant to arrest for an unrelated matter.
