A Hamilton man and woman sought by Police for failing to appear in court were arrested early this afternoon.

Waikato Crime Manager, Detective Inspector Chris Page, said the 19-year-old man and a 22-year-old woman were located in a stolen car by Police near Taupo early this afternoon.

"The pair had been the subject of an extensive search by Police, including the use of the Auckland based Eagle Helicopter, over several days and the inquiry team have been grateful for a number of calls from the public that assisted us in our investigations.

"The pair are currently being interviewed in relation to a number of matters and it is too early to comment on what, if any, charges they may face."
