A man facing a raft of charges after a series of raids on the Comanchero OMC during a major investigation into organised crime is being hunted by police in Auckland.
Jarome Fonua, 24, was one of a dozen people arrested in mid-April after more than 80 police officers raided several Auckland properties as part of Operation Nova – a year-long police investigation into the Comanchero OMC.
Those arrested face a raft of charges relating to organised crime, money laundering and drug supply.
The raids saw some $4 million of assets seized by police, including firearms and several luxury vehicles such as a Rolls-Royce Wraith and gold-plated Harley Davidson motorcycles.
Fonua – along with Connor Clausen, 28, Tyson Daniels, 30, and Pasilika Naufahu, 31 – have pleaded not guilty to the charges.
Police announced on Facebook on Friday that a warrant had been issued for Fonua’s arrest.
