Fast-talking youth fools police
Timaru police have accused a 15-year-old of stealing a TV, then trying to hide it in plain sight.
The youth was stopped by police while carrying a television on North St yesterday. He managed to convince the police the television was not the result of a crime, and was sent on his way.
However, police later received a report of a stolen TV and caught up with the youth again.
He was being questioned this morning about the latest crime wave around the town, a police spokesman said.
