A 45-year-old man has been arrested and charged with unlawful possession of firearms "in relation to recent activities in Ngaruawahia".

On Monday Tribal Huk gang president Jamie Pink left his shot-up vehicle in the Waikato Times car park.

He had pledged to run all of the methamphetamine dealers out of Ngaruawahia, and said his car was shot up as a result, and he may lose his eye because of injuries to it.

Police collected the car from the carpark.

On Friday a police spokeswoman said the man was arrested following the forensic examination of a vehicle.

He will appear in Hamilton District Court on November 2. Police will not comment further as the matter is before the courts.

No complaint has been laid with police in relation to the alleged shooting of the vehicle.

Media are speculating it is Pink who has been arrested but police won't comment.
