Police have arrested a 25-year-old male member of the Comanchero gang in relation to an aggravated robbery incident last year. 

The aggravated robbery, and subsequent alleged assault of a police officer, happened in Mount Maunganui, in the Bay of Plenty, on July 20, 2018.

Two other males were earlier charged in relation to the incident.

This morning Police carried out a search warrant at an address in Waiuku. A significant amount of methamphetamine was located at the address.

The 25-year-old man was expected to appear in the Manukau District Court today, charged with aggravated robbery and assaulting police.

Detective Senior Sergeant Mark Greene says enquiries remain ongoing and Police cannot rule out further charges or arrests.

As the matter is now before the courts, Police are not in a position to comment further.
