Three teenagers have been arrested after an alleged burglary in Whitianga.
Eastern Waikato Area Commander Inspector Dean Anderson said the three young men allegedly used a stolen vehicle to gain entry to a shop on Albert St, Buffalo Beach, just before 4am.
Whitianga police put out the alert across the district and they were found by Hamilton Police after crashing the vehicle into a fence.
All three, aged 13, 14 and 15, will appear in Hamilton District Court tomorrow on charges of burglary.
