A 22-year-old Oamaru man was arrested yesterday, for his alleged part in a string of thefts from Weston to the Georgetown area over the weekend.
Oamaru police Sergeant Craig Sew Hoy said police had received three reports of burglary on Sunday.
On Sunday evening, a car was reported stolen from a Weston-Ngapara Rd address.
The blue Hyundai station wagon, registration number UY9769, was believed to be taken sometime after 7pm on Saturday night.
Police also received a report of a burglary in a similar area, where a small 50cc children's quad bike and a chainsaw were taken.
Further up the road, in the Ngapara- Georgetown area, a cow shed was allegedly broken into.
An air compressor and water blaster were taken from the cow shed.
A motorbike was also taken, but it was recovered, undamaged, elsewhere on the farm.
The thefts are believed to have occurred between 7pm on Saturday night and Sunday evening.
Oamaru police Sergeant Wayne Brew said a 22-year- old Oamaru man was arrested after being found by police driving the blue Hyundai yesterday.
The Oamaru man was yesterday helping police with inquiries into all three reports of burglary.
