A gang member accused of eight aggravated robberies is on the run after cutting off his electronic bracelet.

Teariki Marsters was arrested in October over a string of robberies involving a gun and was bailed on December 12 to a Tuakau address under a 24-hour curfew. 

Police said the 24-year-old UMF gang member and Killer Beez associate, cut off his electronic bracelet nine days later and hasn't been seen since. 

Detective Sergeant Brett Shields said police believe Marsters had since been involved in another "serious violence incident" involving a gun in Otara.

He said that incident was not the shooting of a 23-year-old man in the stomach in Flat Bush on January 2, for which police have already charged two people.  

Shields said Marsters was considered "armed and dangerous" and shouldn't be approached. 

Marsters is known to frequent Otara and police said he may be travelling between Otara and the North Shore "actively avoiding police".

Shields said Marsters had a wide circle of associates and access to several vehicles, including motorbikes.

Marsters is described as muscular and 180cm tall. He has a shaven number one haircut and a tattoo on his upper left arm that reads "Unknown Crims Up" and features a picture of playing cards.

Anyone with information about Marsters can call Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
