10:09 pm on 26 September 2012

Central North Island police are looking for a Rebels motorcycle gang member who has escaped electronic bail.

Craig Wayne Matthews, who lives in Whanganui, was to be arraigned on methamphetamine dealing and money laundering charges in the Palmerston North District Court last Friday, but failed to appear.

Police say he is a solidly built, tall at 1.8 metres Pakeha, and should not be approached.

The 37 year-old was arrested in February last year as part of a Rebels motorcycle gang methamphetamine sting.
