Police are hunting a patched Mongols gang member who is wanted for a raft of alleged violent and dangerous offending.
Australian national Brodie Collins-Haskins has a number of “significant” warrants out for his arrest for alleged offending including assault, possession of illegal firearms, supplying methamphetamine and money laundering.
“Police believe that Collins-Haskins is actively avoiding arrest,” said a spokesman.
“Collins-Haskins is a patched member of the Mongols gang.
“Over recent weeks police have arrested five people linked to this organised crime group in relation to serious drug dealing, firearms and money laundering offences.
“Collins-Haskins is considered to be dangerous and should not be approached.”
Anyone who sees the 26-year-old should call 111 immediately.
Police say he has connections throughout New Zealand including in Auckland, Bay of Plenty and Christchurch.
“If you know where he is then please contact Detective Sergeant Andrew Stevenson on 105,” said the spokesman.
You can also call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
The Mongols – who have links to Australia and the United States – are believed to have about 20 patched members in New Zealand under the leadership of a 28-year-old man deported from Australia in 2018.
