Dunedin police have arrested and charged a 23-year-old woman with burglary after Otago University exam papers were stolen. The scripts have been recovered but are ruined.
The charges come after 98 unmarked examination papers were stolen from a secure area in the university Clocktower building on Saturday night.
This afternoon, the university confirmed that the exam scripts had been recovered.
"Unfortunately, they are in an unusable state. This means we will continue working with the students who had their exam scripts taken."
The university was pleased an arrest had been made but was unable to comment further, a spokeswoman said.
As the matter is now before the courts, police would be making no further comment.
