Gang member back in custody

3:25 pm on 15 January 2010

A member of the Mongrel Mob, who has the word "Notorious" tattooed across his face, has been recaptured by police after more than a week on the run.

Shannon Watene, 30, is accused of pointing a gun at a woman in Hastings on 2 January.

He was taken into custody at a Hastings house this week after a tip-off from a member of the public.
