Police investigating the vandalism of the Rolleston St John ambulance station have made an arrest.

Last night police arrested a 21-year-old man in Christchurch, who had no fixed abode, and charged him with burglary.

A police spokesperson said a man has been charged with burglary and will appear in court later this month.

The community rooms at the station were vandalised on May 2.

The trail of damage included a smashed television, a pool of urine on the floor and food smeared into the carpet.

Police yesterday appealed for help from members of the public. They released a photo of a suspect, taken from the security camera of a nearby premises.
