Operation Cobalt: Firearms located in Remuera search warrant targeting the Mongols

Mongols gang news

Police continue to target unlawful behaviour by members and associates of the Mongols Motorcycle Club under Operation Cobalt.

This month, Police have recovered several firearms, ammunition, and other gang paraphernalia in Remuera as part of enforcement action targeting the gang.

Detective Inspector Aaron Proctor says Police carried out a search on a vehicle of interest parked on Shore Road last week.

“Police spoke with the occupant and a search of the vehicle was carried out which located a MSSA style firearm along with ammunition.”

A 21-year-old man, who is a patched member of the Mongols, has been charged over the find.

He is now before the Auckland District Court on charges of unlawful possession of a restricted weapon and unlawful possession of ammunition.

Following further enquiries, Operation Cobalt subsequently terminated a search warrant at a nearby address on Shore Road with the assistance of the Armed Offenders Squad.

“Our enquiries have been focused on members and associates of the Mongols gang,” says Detective Inspector Proctor.

“At the Remuera property Police located a number of illegal items of interest which have now been seized.”

Police located an AR-15 firearm, a rifle, and a shotgun, along with various quantities of ammunition.

Gang paraphernalia from a variety of gangs was located at the property, including patches from the Mongols, Comancheros and Bandidos.

A 31-year-old man, who is an associate of the Mongols, has been charged with a raft of serious firearms charges.

Those charges include possession of a prohibited firearm, two counts of unlawfully possession of a firearm and unlawful possession of a restricted magazine.

Another man and a woman were also arrested at the address for unrelated matters and are also before the Court.

“This is a fantastic result for Police and the community we are trying to keep safe through our ongoing disruption being directed at the Mongols,” says Detective Inspector Proctor.

“Police are continuing to take an all-of-Police approach to disrupting unlawful behaviour being committed by gangs. This termination was the result of work by dedicated Operation Cobalt staff, being supported by other Police staff from other work groups across Tāmaki Makaurau.

“The public can expect Police will continue to hold gangs to account for offending we are identifying through our disruption and suppression activity under Operation Cobalt.”

  1. Surprise surprise. The government does some chest beating with new powers for police…nek minnut… search warrants produce guns and ammo etc. You can’t tell me those warrants happened overnight; it’s all so choreographed it’s laughable.

  2. It proves that the old Yank saying from the 1960’s has validity;
    ‘IF GUNS WERE OUTLAWED, ONLY OUTLAWS WOULD HAVE GUNS!’ and the pics are worth a thousand words!
    But…here’s a better one;
    ‘AN ARMED SOCIETY IS A POLITE SOCIETY’!
    There’s never any reporting on those in the U.S. who have conceal/carry permits, and have stopped massacres by drawing and firing on the many *mass shooters (*usually on psychotropic meds that alters their thinking, reasoning and cognitive thought processes) that are now coming out of the woodwork in the ‘States.
    Remember the UN Treaty that New Zealand / Aotearoa signed on to, which includes;
    Chapter 7, Article 51, titled ‘The Right to Self Defence’!
    Keep this in mind when you vote for one of the minor coalition political parties that will uphold this well-encased Human Right for self-protection under International Law.
    Jabcinda & Co.’s rule over the non-Masonic ‘profane peasantry’ is about to come to an end with everything that the alternative media and grass roots activists groups are exposing, mainly the LIES of unelected government types and those ‘elected’ who have no background to support the portfolios that they hold!
    Be ready to start a ‘Go Fund Me’ page for Kelvyn & Hannah to pay for legal fees in the event the pleas Judge does not dismiss the charges against them and upholds the illegal raid on their property!

    • Psychotropic meds, yes. There’s a vast range of pharmaceutical disruptors which are forced down the throat of just anyone, anywhere and for whatever reason. The “health system” also plays host to a veritable number of imposters and we are kind of guinea pigs, really. Mind to voice computer tech is so advanced because the psychiatric nurses’ handbook says anyone who claims to be a host to this revoltonaria is immediately sectioned and medicated to the eyeballs, probably never to be seen or heard from again because, well, police with guns.
