A 19-year-old man was arrested early yesterday morning for burglary after being tracked by a police dog back to his property in Seddon, police say.

Constable Michelle Stagg, of Blenheim, said the man, a student, lived nearby and had been throwing rocks at the roof of the house and banging on the door since Friday. It is thought that the 19-year-old targeted the man who lived there after he issued him a parking ticket a while ago. The man and his wife had their suspicions about who was responsible for the harassment and were alarmed at the threatening behaviour, Miss Stagg said.

The couple called police on Sunday night after the behaviour continued and a police dog unit tracked the 19-year-old back to his property.

He was arrested at 2.20am and was held in custody to appear in Blenheim District Court yesterday.
