A Hutt Valley man accused of receiving stolen rugby tickets worth more than $750 will appear in court later this month.

Police say the Lions test match tickets were stolen from a Wellington home's letterbox when they were delivered in May.

Detective Senior Sergeant Warwick McKee says the man then somehow got his hands on the tickets and a family member tried to sell them online.

The 31-year-old labourer is scheduled to appear in the Hutt Valley District Court later this month.
