Hawkes Bay Police executed a search warrant in the Fernhill area on Monday 6th December resulting in the recovery of tens of thousands of dollars worth of stolen property.
Following a burglary in the Twyford Area and theft of a portaloo and trailer, enquiries lead Police to a known address in Fernhill.

A 44-year-old man has appeared in the Hastings District Court, charged with multiple counts of burglary and receiving stolen property.
The offending has taken place over a number of months and police have been able to return a number of stolen items to victims across the North Island.
