Queenstown woman arrested over mail thefts

A "substantial" haul of letters and parcels has been found at the home of a Queenstown woman arrested following a spate of mail thefts.

Police said they recovered the missing mail from the 32-year-old woman's home in Frankton Rd, Fernhill.

The investigation, with the help of NZ Post, will continue and police hoped they would be able to return the stolen mail as soon as possible.

People in the Fernhill area who believed they were missing mail were urged to contact the NZ Post Customer Service Centre on 0800 501 501.

The woman was to appear in Queenstown District Court today.
