The tent was taken from the Botany Covid-19 testing centre in the middle of the night in the late March, a few days into lockdown.

Police said they carried out extensive enquiries, involving detailed forensic analysis, and this week carried out a search warrant at an Auckland house.

The tent was found on the property.

The man will be in court this week charged with burglary.
