A 25-year-old man has been arrested after being chased along the street by two men from a bar in Grove Rd, Blenheim, police said.

Constable Andrew Holdaway said a man was seen smashing the window of a car parked outside the Royal Hotel on Friday evening.

Two men then chased the offender about 7.15pm and held him until police arrived.

Property stolen from another vehicle broken into on Friday was found on the man, Mr Holdaway said.

The vineyard worker was charged with taking items from two cars and was held in custody to appear in the Blenheim District Court.
