Police are seeking a fourth man in connection with the country's biggest ever cocaine haul.
Authorities believe a significant organised crime group is behind the attempt to smuggle in 35 kilograms of the drug, which was found inside a diamante-encrusted ornamental horse airfreighted from Mexico.
Police have released security footage of a man leaving a central Auckland hotel near Albert Street on Friday afternoon.
Detectives would like to talk to him to see if he can provide any information and say he may have a Spanish sounding accent.
Three men, including a 56-year-old American and two Mexicans, aged 44 and 29, have been charged with importing and possessing a class A drug.
The cocaine, which was found in May, has an estimated street value of $14 million.
Anyone with information is asked to call Detective Senior Sergeant Colin Parmenter on 09 259 1069.
Information can also be given anonymously to Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
