Gang figure denies receiving charge

Court House-general1A man said to be a senior Head Hunters gang figure in Christchurch has denied a charge of receiving stolen travel vouchers.

Lyndon Vaughan Richardson, 43, entered the not guilty plea before a registrar at the Christchurch District Court today.

He was remanded on bail for a case review hearing on October 11.

He also denies a charge of failing to attend court while on bail.

Richardson was arrested after a police raid on the gang’s Christchurch headquarters in Sockburn on July 21.

The charge alleges Richardson received stolen travel vouchers worth $250, from persons unknown, and was reckless about whether they were stolen.
