Police were notified about a burglary at the Fraser Cove Shopping Centre just after 2am this morning.
Two offenders had used a Subaru Forrester to gain entry to a store, taking a large amount of merchandise.
One of the offenders fled the scene in this vehicle, and the other left in a grey Mazda.
The Mazda was spotted a short time later by Police and a 32-year-old male was arrested.
He will appear in the Tauranga District Court later today facing charges of dangerous driving, burglary, unlawfully taking a motor vehicle and failing to stop.
Enquiries are ongoing to locate the other offender and his vehicle, and they would like to hear from anyone who may have seen a black Subaru Forrester in the Fraser Street area around the time of the burglary.
Any information that could assist with enquiries into this incident can be provided to the Tauranga Police on (07) 577 4300.
Alternatively, information can also be provided to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
