Man arrested over Miramar tyre slashing

7:30 pm on 25 January 2017

A 52-year-old man has been charged with criminal damage after a spate of tyre slashing in the Wellington suburb of Miramar.

The suburb is close to the city's airport, and its streets are popular for travellers wanting to avoid paying airport parking fees.

The problem arose in October when tyres on several cars were slashed along Kauri Street.

The man will appear in the Wellington District Court next week.
