Police investigating the homicide of 19-year-old Sosiua Helotu Ula have executed search warrants in South Auckland this morning with the assistance of Counties Manukau Police.
A 28-year-old male sought in relation to the inquiry was located and arrested for drug offences connected to the incident.
He is the third person to face charges in connection with the circumstances surrounding Mr Ula’s death.
He will appear in the Manukau District Court today charged with possession of methamphetamine for supply and conspiracy to supply methamphetamine.
The Kapiti-Mana CIB investigation is continuing with a range of inquiries and I would personally like to thank the huge assistance provided by members of the public that has enabled the steady progress in this investigation.
