From Morning Report, 8:39 am on 12 April 2019

Police believe the Comanchero motorcycle gang has been dealt a severe blow after six people were arrested and almost $4 million in assests seized in raids in Auckland on Thursday. The organised crime unit's national manager Detective Superintendent Greg Williams says the New Zealand chapter of the Comancheros was set up by deportees from Australia. Mark Lauchs from the Queensland University of Technology is an expert in Australian gangs.
