Wanted man found hiding in ceiling space

A man who has spent much of the last couple of months on the run from police has been caught - again.

Shannon John Berryman was found hiding in the ceiling space of an Oamaru house yesterday.

It is the second time police have had to track him down.

The 23 year old was caught last month after breaching release provisions, but again absconded, this time in breach of electronic bail.

He was brought to Dunedin overnight, and was being interviewed this morning before a court appearance.

A woman at the Oamaru address was charged with obstructing police.
