Police say 10 members of a Mangere street gang have been arrested and charged with a string of thefts and burglaries.

They say the group - who are part of the HFK gang - are behind 45 burglaries across Auckland over the past six months.

The charges against the 10 include burglary, stealing a motor vehicle, receiving stolen property and participation in an organised criminal group.

All appeared in the Manukau District Court on Wednesday and will reappear on Thursday.
