Arrests made in Nelson gang-related shooting

Nelson crime news

Two people have been arrested after Nelson Police executed search warrants at a number of central Nelson properties this morning.

Today’s operation follows a Police investigation into a gang-related shooting that occurred on St Vincent Street, Nelson on 30 December.

Police seized a sawn-off shotgun with ammunition and a cut-down .22 rifle with ammunition, along with a quantity of illegal drugs and drug utensils.

A 32-year-old man will face drugs-related charges and a charge of accessory after the fact relating to the incident on 30 December, for which one person is currently remanded in custody.

A 35-year-old man will face firearms and drug-related charges, along with other charges relating to family harm.

Detective Senior Sergeant Lex Bruning says today’s results are pleasing, as they represent the culmination of an investigation into an incident that caused a lot of concern in the community.

“Our investigations team has worked hard to determine the circumstances of the incident and identify individuals involved. I hope that today’s arrests will provide reassurance to the community that Police will work hard to address violent offending and bring offenders before the courts.”

Further arrests have not been ruled-out.
