Four teens have been arrested after a car was stolen from a Morrinsville property near Hamilton early this morning.
At 2.10am police were alerted to a report that a car had been stolen from a Morrinsville address.
A police spokeswoman said officers spotted the car and followed it at road speed. She said a pursuit was not initiated.
Instead, road spikes were deployed, which deflated at least one of the tyres and the car came to a stop at the roundabout at the intersection of Clarkin Rd and Heaphy Terrace in Hamilton, the spokeswoman said.
