An arrest has been made after a man's wallet was stolen as he lay dying in a street in a Coromandel town earlier this month.
Henry Pere, 61, collapsed on the street in Waihi and police say his wallet was stolen as he was being given CPR.
Mr Pere later died in hospital.
A 24-year-old man was arrested in Napier yesterday and has been charged with theft.
He will appear in the Waihi District Court next month.
