Police say they have
apprehended a wanted man after a manhunt centred on North
Dunedin this morning.
Police say Justin Mane Paul, who had eluded police since
October 5, was arrested in Chambers St around noon today.
A large police presence, including police patrols, dog
handlers and CIB, descended on North East Valley just after
9am, following sightings of Paul.
The search spread to Opoho later in the morning before the
arrest was made in Chambers St.
