Hawera police are on the hunt for two wanted criminals on the run.
Arnold Brandt and Joel Broughton have both been avoiding police for some time.
Broughton was named one of "Taranaki's most wanted" last year and spent two months evading capture.
The long arm of the law caught up with him when he was found hiding in a wardrobe in a Hawera house and was arrested.
Broughton was released last month but is now wanted by the Department of Corrections for breaching his release conditions. A warrant for his arrest was issued on Tuesday.
Brandt's last known address is Eltham and Broughton is believed to be in Hawera.
Contact Hawera police on 06 278 0260 with any information.
