The man arrested in the Marlborough Express car park on Friday was held in custody until sober and given a pre-charge warning, say police.
Constable Andrew Holdaway, of Blenheim, said yesterday that the 18-year-old German man was arrested about 10.45am.
A staff member reported the man to police after seeing him trying to open car doors in the car park on the corner of Henry and Arthur streets in Blenheim.
