The 30-year-old man was arrested in West Auckland this morning. He has been charged with being an Accessory after the Fact and is scheduled to appear in the Waitakere District Court this afternoon.
It follows the arrest of two other people in relation to this investigation in Northland over the weekend.
Police continue to carry out a range of inquiries to find 27-year-old Reihana, who also uses the name Hone Hawira. They are asking for anyone with sightings of him to contact 111 and to not approach him.
