A 32 year old Manurewa resident was arrested and charged with burglary in relation to the incident pictured on the photograph in The Speculator’s previous article, along with a number of other pan-Auckland burglary offences. He was identified in the street after being seen carrying a large bag marked “Swag” over his shoulder.
Closer inspection revealed the bag was actually his portly friend in disguise, who was attempting to pass himself off as a sack of coal. Unfortunately, he had decided to use his friend’s Swag sack as a costume, and had forgotten to remove the “Swag” label from the sack.
The 32-year old is currently being held in custody. The sack of coal has not been charged at this time.
