Police have arrested two men after memorial items left outside the shop of slain Paeroa businessman Jordan Voudouris were vandalised, but believe the damage is unconnected to the killing.

Detective Senior Sergeant Michael Whitehead said two local men, aged 38 and 42, had been charged with wilful damage and theft and would appear in the Waihi District Court next Tuesday.

There was no indication the pair had any involvement with Voudouris' death, Whitehead said.

It was frustrating that mindless behaviour, such as the vandalism, could divert investigators from their primary focus of finding those responsible for the murder.
