The Comancheros gang established themselves in New Zealand after senior members were deported from Australia. A covert investigation by the National Organised Crime Group targeted the gang's leadership, associates, as well as white-collar professionals who helped them launder the profits of an alleged drug dealing empire. Tallat Rahman claimed to be on holiday until the police revealed his hotel room was bugged - his reaction was priceless.
