One of two men facing charges relating to the theft of avocados from a Whangarei orchard has pleaded guilty.
Kaydin Ihaka, 18, of Raumanga, pleaded guilty to seven charges of burglary and one of driving while disqualified and appeared for sentencing in the Whangarei District Court.
However, Crown prosecutor Catherine Anderson requested an adjournment until matters pertaining to Ihaka's alleged co-accused, Michael Dean Scott, were sorted out.
Scott, 41, a solo father of Raumanga, has denied 15 charges of burglary and has elected a jury trial.
