A 17-year-old who stole 47 packets of synthetic cannabis from a store in Napier has pleaded guilty to burglary.

According to a police summary of facts, Kahn Hohepa Goulton also took three swords, two hookah pipes and 17 smaller brass pipes from King of Swords on Hastings St on the night of February 18.

In Napier District court yesterday, Judge Tony Adeane said it was Goulton's third conviction for burglary.

Judge Adeane remanded Goulton on bail to reappear on July 30 for sentencing.


At the time of the burglary Detective Sergeant Heath Jones said up to 50 packs of K2 that sell for about $20 each were stolen.

"That's what they were targeting," he said. "They went into a building full of ornamental swords and other items, and went straight to what they were after.
