Gang member carried out arranged robbery

A gang member asked by two women to rob an ex-partner of one of them, admitted a robbery charge in the Christchurch District Court today.

Kenneth Daniel Hawkins, admitted that on April 19, 2017 he went to an address in Kaiapoi to steal some property for one of the women.

He went wearing his Mongrel Mob gang insignia, and said he was there for money, tobacco, and drugs.

The victim showed Hawkins his wallet saying he did not have any money, and Hawkins took the wallet off him and left.

Hawkins told the police that he was used by some other people to commit the offence and felt bad about it happening.

Judge Jane Farish remanded him in custody for sentencing on July 11.

The two women involved, Stacey Irene Sumner, 31, and Nicola Christy Geddis, 36, were sentenced to home detention terms in February 2018. They pleaded guilty to a charge of conspiring to commit the robbery.
