A burglar with a taste for cheese and beer avoided capture at the scene of one break-in but was nabbed loitering in bushes outside another house, police say.
A Masterton couple returning to their home in Opaki Kaiparoro Rd about 5.30pm on Thursday startled a man who had broken into their house.
He bolted before police arrived, though not before he had drunk a bottle of beer and munched his way through some camembert cheese.
An hour later, a resident in nearby Loop Line Rd alerted police to a man hiding in bushes outside his house.
A Masterton man, 44, is to appear in Masterton District Court next week charged with burglary
