Firearm recovered, three arrested in Otara

Tribesman Otara arrest news

Police have located a firearm and arrested three men during a pre-planned search warrant in Clarkson Crescent, Otara, this afternoon.

The Armed Offenders Squad assisted as a precaution.

The operation was part of Operation Dairyland, the investigation into a series of firearms incidents and suspicious fires since late May, and of Police’s escalated focus on unlawful activity by gangs.

The three arrested are affiliated to the Tribesmen gang.

The men, aged 35, 36, and 37, have been charged with firearms offences and are due to appear in Manukau District Court on Tuesday.

Information from the public will continue to assist our enquiries.

Anyone with information about those illegally in possession of firearms are urged to contact Police on 105 or anonymously by calling Crime Stoppers on 0800 555 111.
