2 comments


Quick-thinking locals stopped a criminal in his tracks.


Tauranga police acting Senior Sergeant Owen O'Brien said a man snatched a handbag from a woman on Oxford St, Te Puke, about 10.40am yesterday but members of the public caught and held him until police arrived.


A 23-year-old Opotiki man will appear in court today charged with theft.
