“Coffin has contacts in the Te Kuiti, Taumarunui, Taneatua, and coastal King Country locations and it is possible he is travelling between these places.
“Coffin is dangerous and possibly carrying a firearm, for that reason police ask that anyone who sees him doesn’t approach him, but calls 111 immediately.”
When last seen Coffin was driving a stolen red 2000 Subaru Sedan, registration BKG498.
Jimmie says Coffin is a member of the King Country Mongrel Mob and may be wearing a patch.
