Police said they have a warrant to arrest Mafi for 19 charges relating to using a document and obtaining by deception.

She is 180cm tall with a solid build and has tattoos on the back of her left hand.

Mafi is thought to be somewhere in the Auckland area.

She is known to use a number of aliases including the first names of Mele, Stephanie, Chantelle, Marysienna and Luseane.

On a separate note, Police in Counties Manukau have 15 warrants to arrest Weis Donald Saafi for multiple drug charges including possession of methamphetamine.

Saafi is 175cm tall with a solid build and has multiple tattoos including a dragon on both upper arms, a sword on left upper arm, a line around the lower part of his neck as well as “Tonga” written across his back.

Saafi is likely to be in the West Auckland area.
