NZ Newswire logoNZ Newswire 23/09/2016

A man has been arrested after being caught with a taser following a bungled Christchurch burglary.

Police say the 24-year-old was one of three alleged burglars interrupted by the occupants of a home in Burwood on Saturday morning.

One of the group had gone inside and taken some car keys, but was caught in the act and the trio fled on foot after also failing to steal a bike from next door, police said.

The arrested man was found nearby, carrying a taser, after being tracked by a police dog.

He is due to appear in court on Monday on two charges of aggravated burglary.

Police are still looking for the other two.
