Police have arrested a gang member in Waikato who is known for trying to evade to officers.

Cody Keenan, who has 'Mighty Mongrel Mob' tattooed in large letters across his face, was taken into custody on Friday night in Cambridge, south of Hamilton.

The 28-year-old was sought in relation to multiple offences.

Keenan is due to appear in the Hamilton District Court on Saturday.

Keenan has a history of brushes with the law, including an incident last year during which he jumped off a bridge into the Waikato River to avoid capture. He was arrested a few days later after crashing his car.
