Glen Innes strategic traffic unit sergeant David Mead says police recovered the fountain statue along with the two offenders after a pursuit in the early hours of January 31. The offenders admitted stealing the fountain but neither could identify the location other than Ponsonby,'' he says. Mr Mead says the situation unfolded when the two men were in the city and stole a courtesy car which was parked on a Ponsonby street. They then stole the water foun- tain from somewhere nearby. They located another car nearby that they also decided to steal, broke into it but couldn't get it started. They hooked up a tow rope and towed it away.'' Mr Mead says at about 4.30am police noticed the car being towed on the Mt Wellington Highway. They dumped the towed vehicle and a pursuit occurred. They punctured the initial car, dumped it and ran. A police dog handler caught them both. Both males had warrants to arrest and active criminal charges.'' He says the two men are facing v arious charges which include unlawful taking of a motor vehicle, theft, dangerous driving and failing to stop. The owner of the statue can contact Mr Mead at dmh725@ police.govt.nz or on 524-1961.
