Gang members caught with guns and drugs after fleeing police

A 21-year-old man and a 19-year-old man have been arrested after a fleeing driver incident in a stolen vehicle in Palmerston North this morning.

The patched gang members were observed driving in a stolen vehicle on Maxwells Line, Roslyn, last night just before midnight.

A Police Dog Unit indicated for the vehicle to stop, and the offenders attempted to ram the vehicle.

The two occupants of the offending vehicle then began to throw metallic car parts out of the vehicle at police following them.

Spikes were successfully deployed on Tremaine Avenue however the vehicle continued to drive onto the hospital grounds.

The vehicle finally came to a stop and one occupant ran from the vehicle and was located in the hospital car park, while the other occupant was located shortly after.

The vehicle contained a sawn-off shot gun, numerous ammunition, and cannabis.

The 21-year-old driver is facing charges of failing to stop for police, driving in a dangerous manner and driving while on a suspended licence.

The 19-year-old passenger is facing charges of assault, possession of an offensive weapon, unlawful possession of ammunition among other charges.

‘This was a very dynamic and dangerous event but through the professionalism of the Police staff involved successfully bought this situation to a safe conclusion for the public, police staff and the offenders,’ said Senior Sergeant Matt Prendergast, Central District Command Centre.

‘Police continue to have no tolerance for this sort of offending, and we will use all measures available to us to hold those committing this type of offending to account.’

  1. Remember what ‘they’ in Parliament did to us; removed our fundamental RIGHT to protection using firearms, and yet;
    Here we are with this article!
    Just goes to show that ‘IF GUNS WERE OUTLAWED, ONLY OUTLAWS WOULD HAVE GUNS!
    Absolutely correct, and approved by the same Zionist Communist Government that approved genocidal vaccines!
    Out come the 3D printers, ghost gun parts, and home-made weapons for defence against those who have the ‘illegal’ firearms…!
