Weapons and meth seized


Police seized an Uzi submachine gun, six revolvers, a Glock pistol, methamphet­amine and Head Hunters patched clothing from a South Auckland storage locker as part of an ongoing sting into organised crime on Thursday. More than $5 million in assets and cash have been restrained this week as part of police Operations Seltos, Van and Equinox following searches of various sites including the Waikato Comanchero­s bikie gang headquarte­rs. The operations are linked to global law enforcemen­t sting Operation Trojan Shield, which tricked organised criminal networks into using encrypted communicat­ion devices that were monitored by the FBI.
