Four young Gisborne men, including three brothers, have been further remanded on bail after appearing in court today on serious charges following a vehicle swap that went wrong last week.

Brothers Jason Peter Broughton, 22, Riki Wayne Broughton, 17, Steven Gerard Broughton, 20, and Roger Charles Christian Tupa, 20, appeared in Gisborne District Court this morning before a registrar. They will reappear on February 8.

They are facing several charges including kidnapping, aggravated robbery and unlawful possession of a firearm.

Bail conditions include to reside at certain addresses, 7pm to 7am curfew, not to enter Rotorua or contact the complainant.

Three were bailed to Gisborne addresses and one to Wellington.

The charges follow an incident last Wednesday in Rotorua where it is alleged by police that the four young men demanded, at gunpoint, the return of a vehicle they had swapped after making contact on Trade Me.
