STOLEN NEW ZEALAND MEDAL BROKER SEEKS LENIENCY
The wholesome-looking man who brokered the return of rare war medals stolen from New Zealand's Waiouru Army Museum in December 2007 is hoping his effort will be rewarded with leniency ... on unrelated charges. -Editor
The man who negotiated the safe return of one of the stolen war medals says he should not spend any time in jail if convicted of serious methamphetamine charges.
Daniel William Crichton was granted bail while facing serious drugs charges after arranging the return of one of the priceless war medals stolen from the Waiouru Army Museum in December 2007.
He was bailed in January 2008 after organising the return of a George Cross to police as "a sign of good faith".
The rest of the medals, including nine Victoria Crosses, were returned four weeks later.
Two men have subsequently been charged with the burglary.
