A spokesperson said police in Tāmaki Makaurau conducted a pre-planned road operation in Ramarama today.
Police were aware of gang activity in the area and the checkpoint was used to check driver-licensing and vehicle compliance.
“People in the area would have noticed that police were highly visible as a result and were monitoring any dangerous driving behaviour or other anti-social behaviour,” the statement said.
“In general, those who went through the checkpoint were compliant and vehicles were up to the required standard.”
Police said they will continue to monitor the situation across the Auckland region in regard to any further gang activity.
People are encouraged to report any unsafe, dangerous or intimidating behaviour to police by contacting 105 after an event or by calling 111.
A report can also be filed online via 105.police.govt.nz or contact Crime Stoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
The Country Inn motel also hosted the gang’s AGM last year, which featured an elaborate patching ceremony attended by Josh Masters, the paralysed president of the gang, who was riding a quad bike at that gathering.
