A man described as dangerous with a violent criminal history is wanted by police for breaching his parole conditions.

Police are seeking the public's help in finding Cameron Lee Ashby, 34, of Te Aroha, but warn that he should not be approached.

Hamilton tactical co-ordinator, Senior Sergeant Freda Grace, said Ashby had a disturbingly violent criminal history dating back to May, 2000.

He was sentenced to 10 years imprisonment in 2005, was released on parole but has since breached his conditions.

''He also has a history of carrying firearms and knives and anyone who recognises Ashby is warned not to approach him but to ring 111 immediately,'' Mr Grace said.

Ashby is described as a male Maori of medium build about 180cm tall.

He has known connections in the Hamilton, Waihi, Paeroa and Karangahake Gorge areas.

Anyone with information on Ashby's whereabouts is asked to contact Ms Grace at the Hamilton Central Police Station on 07 858 6200.

Alternatively, information can be left anonymously with Crimestoppers on 0800 555111.

Would a pedestrian and cycleway bridge connecting the Waikato River's east and west banks make Hamilton more appealing?

Yes, it will be a great attraction

Maybe, if it is executed correctly

No, it won't

It is just another pipe dream
