Tom Phillips case: Police issue warrant to arrest for alleged robbery

Tom Phillips news

Waikato Police investigating an aggravated robbery in Te Kuiti from May have now obtained a warrant to arrest for Tom Phillips.

‘Recent developments in our ongoing enquiries have led Police to charge Mr Phillips with aggravated robbery, aggravated wounding and unlawfully possessing a firearm,’ said Acting Detective Inspector Andrew Saunders.

In May, Police appealed for information after two people entered a bank on Rora Street, Te Kuiti and demanded cash.

Both were armed and fled the scene on a black, farm-style motorbike.

‘We are yet to identify the other person involved.

‘Police have been seeking to speak with Mr Phillips for some time.

‘We have issued several appeals for information following sightings of Mr Phillips over the last couple of months.

‘We urge the public to report any sightings of Mr Phillips to Police on 111 quoting file number 230516/7295.

‘Alternatively, you can contact Police via the dedicated email address – op.curly@police.govt.nz(link is external).

‘We also urge people not to take action themselves as Mr Phillips potentially still has firearms in his possession.

‘Additionally, Police remain concerned about the welfare of the Phillips children, who were officially reported as missing in December 2021.

‘If you have any information that may assist Police in locating them, please get in contact.

‘Police would like to thank the public for the information received so far which has been invaluable for our ongoing enquiries.’

  1. I think that this is another case of Tom being framed as was David Bain, Alan Hall, and perhaps *Mark Lundy (*who ran afoul of the local gang(s) and they sought retribution, and Lundy was blamed???).
    Tom Phillips took his children out of the Woke society, and the corrupt Just-us system. He succeeded in doing that, and it has embarrassed the MoE, MoH, MoSD, and the Cops.
    Time will tell…

    • Yeah, this whole thing stinks.

      This guy’s apparently a bank robber now? Based on what exactly? That could be literally anyone on that bike in the pic. Zero evidence it’s him.

      And where were his kids while he was supposedly cruising around with an accomplice reenacting Pulp Fiction? He apparently just left them out in the bush somewhere to go on a violent crime spree?

      Just take the government’s word for it, okay? 👍
