Three further people have been arrested following a major operation targeting the Comanchero gang and its associates.

Last Thursday, police arrested six people for money laundering and supplying drugs after a sweep of members and associates of the motorcycle gang.

More than 80 officers including members of the armed offenders squad and dog handlers searched ten properties around Auckland, seizing four million dollars worth of assets.

On Friday, the police arrested a 40-year-old New Zealand national in Sydney with the help of Australian Federal Police. He faces a number of drug and money laundering related charges.

Police will be seeking extradition of this individual.

This morning, a 37-year-old woman was arrested and charged with importing methamphetamine and money laundering.

And a 48-year-old man has also been arrested and charged with importing methamphetamine.

Both are due to appear in the Auckland District Court.

Inquiries into the gang and its associates are continuing and the police have not ruled out further arrests or charges.
