Three arrested after Fear Factory break-in

Three people have been arrested after allegedly breaking into Fear Factory, a "haunted house'' attraction on Shotover St, on Friday.

An alarm was activated at the property about 4.30am and four people were seen leaving on CCTV.

Officers attended the scene and two women and an Australian man were later arrested and given pre-charge warnings.

Sgt Pirovano said the trio's ages and the nationality of the two women were not known.
