Hawke’s Bay Police continue to provide reassurance of patrols following recent gang activity last week across the region.

Gang activity, as a result, means that Hawke’s Bay Police have increased their visibility in certain areas and are undertaking investigations into the offending.

On December 10 Police conducted several search warrants at addresses in Napier due to the recent tension that was sparked.

The search warrants executed resulted in one person becoming arrested on unrelated charges, and enquiries are ongoing.

Search warrants were also executed at two Raupunga addresses on Tuesday, December 8, where firearms and drugs were seized. However, arrests were imminent.

Hawke’s Bay Area Prevention Manager Inspector Martin James says Police take these incidents extremely seriously and the priority is the safety and wellbeing of the community.

“The increased Police presence has had a positive impact on reducing gang activity; however, we acknowledge that tension remains.”
