A Manawatu farmer whose companies are in the hands of liquidators and receivers has a warrant issued for his arrest.

Robert Julian McVitty, 62, failed to appear in the Feilding District Court today on two charges of theft.

He is accused of stealing a trailer valued at $1500 from an individual, and $2834 worth of farm materials belonging to the Bank of New Zealand.

Two of McVitty’s companies, McVitty Properties and Patoka Dairies, were put into receivership about two years ago, owing more than $73 million to the bank.
