South Auckland police investigating the murder of 80-year-old Yan Ping Yang in her Manurewa home, have arrested three men.

One of those arrested, a 28 year old man, is facing 15 charges relating to home invasions, robbery and theft. Police say at this point he is not linked with the murder of Yang, but is not ruled out either.

He will appear in Manukau District Court on Friday.

The man's most recent home invasion took place in Papatoetoe on Monday. 

The other two, a man and a 16-year-old, also face charges of burglary of a central Auckland address.

The police were alerted when the pair tried to exchange a large amount of Hong Kong dollars at a bank in Manukau.

Police believe there could be other victims and they want them to come forward.
