Police on Monday made one arrest after an alleged illegal gathering was held in the Redvale suburb of Auckland's North Shore.
The gathering was held on Sunday — an Instagram influencer party at a property in the area — blatantly ignored and breached the Covid-19 Alert Level 3 restrictions.
A 27-year-old man, alleged to have organised the illegal gathering, was arrested and charged with Failing to Comply with the Covid-19 Public Health Response Act (Alert Level Requirements) Order (No 12) 2021.
He is scheduled to appear in the North Shore District Court on October 22, to face the charge.
