A man wanted in relation to the aggravated robbery of the Sideline Sports Bar in Richmond last month will appear in court this afternoon after he turned himself in to police.
Jackson Manson, aged 22, presented himself at the Christchurch Central Police Station late this morning, says Detective Tim Cummins.
He was arrested without incident.
Manson will faces charges in relation to the robbery of the Sideline Bar, which took place just after 11pm on Wednesday, November 7.
Manson had been on the run from police after ditching his car in Shirley when police were on his tail.
They found a pistol in the abandoned vehicle.
Police then issued an arrest warrant for Manson for the aggravated robbery in which patrons were ordered to lie on the floor and a staff member was ordered at gunpoint to open the safe.
The two robbers fled soon after in what was believed to be a white Subaru.
Within days one of the alleged robbers was caught by police, but the second man had so far eluded them.
The arrested man appeared in court a month ago and has been remanded in custody pending further appearances.
Last week Detective Sergeant Chris Power said Manson, a gang associate, had access to firearms and was a risk to the public.
"He should be treated as armed and dangerous," he said.
The Armed offenders Squad had been assisting detectives search houses for Manson.
Last week, heavily armed AOS members hit a Dallington house where it was believed Manson may have been hiding out.
An off-duty police officer had seen Manson, but police said he had left the Gayhurst Rd address before the AOS arrived.
