Where is Richard? Not the usual bus passenger

Where is Richard? Not the usual bus passenger


Police have a warrant to arrest recidivist sex offender Richard Hona who is also wanted for breaching conditions of his intensive supervision following his release from prison just over three weeks ago.

The conditions forbid 44 year old Hona to travel on public transport but he has been observed masturbating on buses around several Auckland suburbs since his recent release.

Police have reports that he has been offending on buses that have travelled through Botany Downs, Auckland City, Ponsonby, Herne Bay, Pt Chevalier, Sandringham, Mt Eden, Newmarket, Mt Albert and St Lukes. It's possible he's travelled on the North Shore as well.

Hona is a light skinned Maori of thin to medium build and about 182cms tall (6ft). He has long black hair and acne scarring on both cheeks. He usually carries a khaki coloured backpack and wears a dark jacket and long pants.
Anyone with information about his whereabouts should call or txt Acting Sergeant Landon Pearce on 021 191 2850 or contact Police on 111.

Turei was citing her case in order to query whether much has changed – especially when it comes down to whether the current benefit levels and targeting rules at WINZ are helping or hindering today’s beneficiaries to escape from poverty. More>>
