Hip hop artist Scribe, who is accused of drugs and weapons-related offences, has handed himself in, according to Stuff website.
Police said: “Malo Luafutu (Scribe) has made contact with the court in regard to his outstanding warrant to arrest. He has been instructed to return to the Porirua District Court (today). Luafutu is no longer wanted.”
Luafutu was arrested in Phillipstown, Christchurch, on April 2.
He was charged with possession of an offensive weapon, namely a bat, in Olliviers Road, possession of the class A drug amphetamine, and possession of a pipe for using amphetamine.
A warrant was issued for his arrest when he failed to appear in the Christchurch District Court on July 25.
A post on a Facebook page under his name said: “There are valid reasons why I missed my court date.
“Do I manufacture drugs? No. Do I sell drugs? No. Do I promote drug use? Never.
“Have I made mistakes? Most certainly. See it for what it is. A distraction from what’s really happening.
“I’m also a father and how this will effect (sic) my children is all I care about.” NZN
