Police in the Hutt Valley are searching for a woman after she removed her home detention bracelet and left her home.

A warrant has been issued for the arrest of Renee Kathleen Sargent.

She is the latest in a string of offenders removing their bracelets over the last few months, including a high-risk sex offender, Patrick McGreevy, a few weeks ago.

Sargent is described as Pakeha, 165 centimetres tall and thin, with dyed blonde hair.

The police are asking anyone with information to get in touch and any sighting should be reported to 111 immediately.
