Queenstown Police have arrested a man in relation to a series of burglaries in the Wakatipu Basin.

Police carried out several search warrants last week and recovered a large amount of property from residential and commercial burglaries over the last two months.

A 29-year-old man was arrested and is due to appear in the Queenstown District Court today on several charges including burglary.

This type of offending can have a real impact on the local community and businesses. We will continue to hold people to account who commit burglaries.

Police are still seeking sightings of a light gold-coloured 2002 Range Rover (pictured) which was taken in one of the burglaries.

We would like to hear from anyone with any information as to its whereabouts. You can contact 105 and quote file number 210922/0123.

Alternatively you can contact Crime Stoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
