A Northland man wanted in relation to an incident where a firearm was allegedly presented at officers during a vehicle stop has been arrested in Auckland.

Police confirmed officers from Waitakere carried out a search warrant on unrelated matters at a New Lynn address where they located and arrested a 25-year-old man.

The man, who has links to Kaikohe, has been allegedly avoiding police since December 9 after an incident on Western Hills Dr in Whangarei.

He will be appearing today in Waitakere District Court facing three charges each of using a firearm against law enforcement officers and breaching court release conditions.


Northland Police thanked the public for their help in locating Reeves.
