A 24-year-old New Plymouth man arrested in an extensive drug surveillance operation targeting the Rebel motorcycle gang has received home detention.

Tai William Massey-Hunter, unemployed, is the third man netted during Operation Puff in September last year to be sentenced in the High Court in New Plymouth this week to the community-based penalty.

Massey-Hunter admitted conspiring to supply class C drug ecstasy.

Justice Christopher Allan gave Massey-Hunter credit for his guilty plea and noted that he had strong support, had moved away from his drug acquaintances and had self- referred to drug and alcohol treatment.

Massey-Hunter was sentenced to six months' home detention and ordered to attend drug treatment and relapse-prevention programmes.
