Crime spree ends in KFC crash

NZ NewswireNZ Newswire 17/04/2016

An Ashburton crime spree has ended with a stolen car crashing through a KFC.

Police say they were kept busy by a series of burglaries in the town on Sunday night, starting with a break-in at a homeware shop before midnight, followed by one at a New World then another at Robbie's Bar.

After an alarm was tripped at the Tinwald Supervalue, a police chase of a stolen vehicle ensued at about 12.30am.

But the fleeing driver didn't last long, quickly crashing through the Ashburton KFC before being taken into custody by officers.

Two other people in the car managed to escape on foot, police said.
