Two men have been arrested after allegedly breaking into more than 20 cars in Red Beach and Whangaparoa.
Senior Sergeant Andy King, of Orewa, said the men were arrested last night after a "spate of thefts" from 26 cars.
Most of the vehicles were parked on suburban streets or up driveways. Various items were stolen.
The two men, neither of whom were locals, will appear at North Shore District Court today charged with a number of offences.
"This is another reminder to the public, as we head into the summer months, of the need to secure their parked vehicles and remove valuable property from them," King said.
