Detective Sergeant Chris Fouhy says the recent arrests continue to highlight the involvement of gangs in criminal offending such as drug dealing, burglary and theft of motor vehicles.

"Police will continue to pursue those who chose to be part of gangs and commit crime, those who deal drugs and those who steal or receive stolen property.
The message is simple from Kaikohe Police. If you chose to deal, manufacture drugs or steal in our town you will face the consequences of your actions."

Mr Fouhy says Kaikohe Police would like to thank local people who have assisted in providing information about offending in the area via Crimestoppers.

"Recent results would not have been possible without the public’s assistance and we ask for your continued support."

If you have information about criminal offending including drug dealing in the Kaikohe area please contact the Kaikohe Police Station on (09) 405 2960 or if you wish to remain anonymous contact the Crimestoppers organisation on 0800 555 111.
