What is a Crime Ring?

Alleged crime ring members in High Court

Is one man's gang another man's crime ring? I'm not sure. Is the penalty for organised crime greater than the penalty for disorganised crime? Were not the recently jailed businessman and developer who dished out a bit of cocaine and speed part of a 'crime ring'? Or is it a convenient phrase for a sensational headline?.

During the operation, police also recovered six firearms, and have laid charges relating to the unlawful taking of more than a million dollars worth of high performance vehicles, more than $50,000 of fraudulent use of credit cards and the thefts of valuable art works from a Parnell gallery in Auckland.


Interesting to note the value of stolen high performance cars attributed to these fellows who, by their names and activities, seem to be both multicultural and culturally awarel. That should get their sentenecs reduced. Yes, the painting classes at Paremoremo will welcome this influx of talent.

By my calculation they nicked either two dozen Holdens or fifty Fords.
