Arrest in connection with March infant formula threat

A 60 year-old Auckland businessman has been charged in connection with the criminal blackmail threat to poison infant formula with 1080, made public in March this year.

This follows the execution of five search warrants in Auckland and the Rangitikei district this morning.

He has been charged with two counts of blackmail, each charge relating to the threat letters sent to Fonterra and Federated Farmers in November 2014.
