Request from public for information regarding whereabouts of Daniel Waka MINOGUE
Police across Tasman District are currently looking for Daniel Waka Minogue, aged 31years, who is wanted to be spoken to in relation to several incidents involving acts of serious violence between late September and early October 2012.
Detective Sergeant Brett Greer of the Nelson Police said that the first incident that Minogue was believed to be involved with was a 'home invasion' type incident that occurred in Canvastown, Marlborough District on the night of 24 September 2012. A number of people were involved in that incident with two people having already been charged and put before the Nelson District Court this week.
The second incident relates to a domestic violence assault that involved Minogue and his partner whereby she received a number of facial injuries.
Extensive enquiries have been carried out in the Nelson region and have extended into the Marlborough region. We believe that he is either avoiding police or is being looked after by associates of his.
Minogue does have links to the Mongrel Mob and enquiries are being made with this group especially in the Marlborough area as we believe that as recently as yesterday he was in the Blenheim township. Information that we have suggests that he either has with him or has access to a firearm.
An arrest warrant has been issued from the Nelson District Court in relation to the incident involving the 'home invasion' so it is very important that if Minogue is seen that Police are notified as soon as possible.
Minogue is described as Maori, Medium build about 165 to 176cms in height. It is possible that he may have changed his general hair appearance by cutting his hair, however he does has a distinctive crooked nose.
People with any information are urged to contact their local police station as soon as possible.
Alternatively direct contact can be made with Detective Sergeant Brett Greer of the Nelson CIB on 03 5459811.
Members of the public are also encouraged to contact Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111. These calls are treated in the utmost confidentiality and the information is passed on to police.
