A Bay of Plenty teenager has been arrested after a police car was stolen last month.
Police units were deployed, along with the Eagle Helicopter, to search for the stolen vehicle.
The police car was found abandoned on Gibbs Road a couple of hours later, but the offender was no where to be found.
Police have today arrested 18-year-old Maakai Emery who they sought in relation to the incident.
A police spokesperson says Emery was located at a Murupara address at 11.20am.
Police have not released any other information at this stage.
We will update this story if anything more comes to light.
