Police have charged two more people in connection with an Otaki burglary that had links with a wave of burglaries in the lower North Island.

The two, aged 25 and 28, will appear in court over the Otaki incident, which involved goods worth $10,000.

A 23-year-old man was arrested earlier in connection with the same offence.

The three also face charges in connection with a series of offending in late May, including an arson attack on the Karori police base, burglaries of businesses, car thefts and a ram raid.

Two men aged 41 and 43, and a 51-year-old woman are already before the courts over those incidents.
