Three people have been arrested following a string of burglaries in Auckland during alert level 4 lockdown.

On Sunday, officers from the Auckland City West Area's tactical crime unit, with assistance from the financial crime unit, carried out search warrants at two properties in Mount Albert and Mount Roskill.

A 27-year-old woman has been charged with a range of offences including eight burglaries around the Auckland area. 

The offences included five alleged burglaries targeting post shops in Mt Roskill, Epsom, College Hill and Auckland's CBD along with other break-ins at construction sites in central Auckland during lockdown. 

The 27-year-old will appear in Auckland District Court in October. 

Police also arrested two other people as a result of further investigations. 

They located a large amount of stolen property during the search warrants including high-end bags, tools and construction equipment.
