Glen Innes firearms incident news

Police have arrested four people in relation to serious firearm offences occurring in Glen Innes in the last two months.

Police have this week executed a number of search warrants into two firearms incidents, which occurred on Taniwha Street, Glen Innes, on 19 July and 12 August this year.

Around 11.48pm on Tuesday 19 July, Police received reports of gunshots being fired towards a property on Taniwha Street.

Two vehicles were damaged as a result and those responsible subsequently left the location in a vehicle.

Around 10.30pm on Saturday 12 August, Police were again called to a Taniwha Street address following a report of a firearm having been discharged towards a property.

‘Thankfully no one was injured in either of the incidents,’ said Detective Senior Sergeant Greg Brand, Auckland City CIB.

‘Police have no tolerance for firearm-related violence in our country.

‘We are working hard to ensure we keep our communities safe, and we will continue to actively target those involved in criminal activity, and hold them to account.

‘A 19-year-old male and a 18-year-old male have also been charged with intent to injure with a firearm.

‘All four men were due to appear in the Auckland District Court.

‘As the matter is now before the Court, Police are limited in further comment.
