Man facing raft of charges after armed arrest

11:10 am on 12 November 2012

A man police described as dangerous has been arrested following an Armed Offenders Squad operation.

Police had been looking for Rory Smyth, 25, after he failed to appear before the Auckland District Court in October.

They also want to talk to him about a bank robbery in the suburb of Panmure.

Mr Smyth was arrested in Pukekohe early on Monday and will appear in the district court on more than a dozen charges, including aggravated robbery.
