An armed offenders squad operation in Auckland ended with the arrest of a wanted man, who is in hospital being treated for a dog bite.
The police had been looking for Kershaw Howard on warrants relating to aggravated robbery and unlawful possession of a firearm.
They said he was found at a Papakura property just before 9am and tried to run away.
The police said they used a dog team to track him down.
He is under police guard in hospital and will be appearing in the North Shore District Court when he is released.
