Second arrest in Wellington burglary spree

A second person has been arrested in relation to 10 commercial burglaries across the Wellington region.

Police say a team of 20 officers, including CIB, frontline staff and police dogs executed two search warrants in Waitangirua and Cannons Creek this morning to arrest a man wanted in connection to the crimes.

Last week police arrested a 'crawling burglar' as part of their investigations into burglaries at pubs and cafes in Lower Hutt and the Wellington CBD.

Detective Sergeant Ben Quinn praised the work of officers to identify suspects they believe are involved in the crime spree.

Evidential material was found at both houses today, and a car was seized for forensic examination.

Det Sgt Quinn says more arrests are likely.

The man is set to appear in the Porirua District Court today.
