More than 30 people have so far been arrested in New Zealand in connection with Operation Trojan Shield, in which an FBI-run encrypted app allowed police to monitor discussions of drug shipments and other crimes.

Police said a 50-year-old man who had warrants out for his arrest was found in Raglan last night.

He will appear in the Hamilton District Court on Friday on a range of offences.
