A man has been charged over the theft of fencing items from Wanganui Riding for the Disabled.

The charity suffered a spate of burglaries last December, including the theft of tools belonging to a man who was fixing the fences free of charge.

The owner of the tools was at a second-hand trading store recently and contacted police when he saw his missing tools up for sale.

A 27-year-old Wanganui man was charged with receiving stolen property and will appear in the Whanganui District Court on April 8.


Riding for the Disabled provides opportunities for people with disabilities to interact with horses.
