A Tauranga security officer has been accused of trying to arrange for someone to kill his parents.

Alan Francis Barlow, 42, is charged with attempting to procure an undercover police officer to murder his parents, Kevin James Barlow and Diana Noeleen Barlow, who are understood to be aged in their 60s.

Court documents said the accused approached an undercover constable in Huntly on October 12 to arrange the killing.

The documents said police had been tipped off, SunLive reported.

Alan Barlow appeared at a court registrar's hearing and was remanded on bail without plea until his next appearance in the High Court in Tauranga on Monday.
