Wanaka police are relieved no fires were lit on the corner of
Chalmers St and Stratford Tce yesterday but continue to chase
every lead as they hunt the person responsible for six
deliberately-lit fires at the site since January 9.
A short but high-speed car chase in Dunedin, in which a
motorist allegedly fled from a police patrol car at speeds of
up to 137kmh in Mosgiel, ended when the pursued car turned
into a dead-end street, police say.
