A patched Bandidos gang member from Auckland has been jailed for 20 months over possessing a haul of weapons. The charges came following the burglary of a Dunedin address on October 25, where a cache of firearms and ammunition were stolen, but Grant Andrew Latimer had no role in the burglary. Five rifles and 23 handguns, including several military-style semi-automatic firearms, and ammunition, were taken from a flat in Maitland St, police said. Three of the firearms were military-style, semi-automatic rifles, one of which had a scope. The defendant came to Dunedin on November 8 with associates and the following day couriered bags from a house on Canongate to Waitati.
