Rowdy tourists: Woman accused of stealing sunglasses, rope and energy drinks

It's been revealed a member of a group of rowdy tourists causing havoc in the North Island is accused of stealing sunglasses, rope and energy drinks.

She is expected to appear in the Hamilton District Court on theft charges on Wednesday.

The group of tourists, who say they are from England, arrived in the country recently and have caused trouble in Auckland and Hamilton.

Incidents first came to light on Sunday after a woman posted video of her confronting the group for littering on Takapuna beach in Auckland's North Shore.

Since then multiple restaurants have come forward alleging the group refused to pay for their food.

The group on Tuesday moved on to Hamilton, where they have been served with a deportation liability notice after an incident at a Te Rapa Burger King on Tuesday.

A 26-year-old connected to the rowdy tourists was arrested for theft on Tuesday evening. She will be appearing at the Hamilton District Court on Wednesday.

The charges relate to the theft of energy drinks, rope and sunglasses from a Caltex service station in Albany on Auckland's North Shore.
