A man is due to appear in the Tauranga District Court today after being located in the Lower Kaimai last night.

A caller to the 0800 SUNLIVE news hotline says as they were travelling home along Ruahihi Road at around 8pm, they saw headlights at the bottom of Gunga Lane.

“We slowed down and saw that the car that was stopped was a police car.

“There was one police car and two police officers.

“We got asked where we were going and got told we were fine and didn’t look like the person they were looking for.

“Later on we saw a police helicopter flying over as well.”

A police spokesperson says police were looking for a person of interest.

 “A 29-year-old man was located at an address in the Lower Kaimais.

“The man is facing multiple charges and is due to appear in the Tauranga District Court today.”
