NZ NewswireNZ Newswire 25/07/2016

A man facing a charge of assault with a firearm remains on the run after allegedly cutting off his home detention bracelet three months ago.

Police say Alaric Eccleston, 30, cut off the bracelet in April and repeated attempts to locate him, including making inquiries with family, friends and associates in Auckland and Tokoroa have failed.

There are several warrants outstanding for Ecclestone's arrest and he faces an active charge for alleged assault using the butt of a firearm, says Acting Sergeant Tama Morehu.

Eccleston should not be approached and anyone with information should contact police, he said.

There have been a several recent cases of people accused of removing their monitoring bracelets.

In Wellington, police have again asked for information to help them find Lydon Keil, who removed his bracelet in Wainuiomata in late June.

They said Keil, 31, was considered dangerous and should not be approached.

In February, he was allegedly involved in a firearms incident in which three men went to a woman's home and threatened her with a gun.
