The results of a police investigation into how surplus items from the Dunedin Chinese Garden ended up in a demolition yard will not be released until at least early next year.
Police were asked by the Dunedin City Council to investigate how items from the garden made their way to secondhand dealer Shaw's Yard in South Dunedin.
A council spokesman said the report had been given to the council early this week but still need to be reviewed by senior management.
Once that happened, it would be handed back to the police so they could make an announcement, the spokesman said.
Despite requests for information on the findings of the investigation they have not been released. The council said it could not release anything until the investigation was completed.
