An appeal against the sentence of a gang associate convicted of theft was upheld in the High Court at Invercargill yesterday. In December, Mongrel Mob associate Peter Anthony Teddy, 39, was sentenced, along with Mongrel Mob boss Shaun Te Kahu, for the the theft of a $25,000 Chevrolet pickup truck between April 19 and June 4 last year.
Teddy, who also pleaded guilty to charges of male assaults female, breach of protection order, possession of utensils for the consumption of cannabis, and breach of bail, was sentenced to two years' six months jail while Te Kahu was sentenced to two years three months' jail. The background of the theft charge was that Teddy had approached the owners of the pickup truck and told them a hit was to be carried out on them by the Mongrel Mob.
Teddy and Te Kahu then visited the pair, where Te Kahu requested a "gift". Shortly after, the truck was stolen, and Teddy contacted the pair to say Te Kahu had taken it and if they wanted it back they would have to pay some money. The truck was later found after police searched the Mongrel Mob headquarters on an unrelated matter.
