An Auckland man arrested as part of nationwide police raids on suspected weapons training camps declared war on New Zealand in communication intercepted by police, a court has been told.

Jamie Beattie Lockett, 46, of Takanini, in Manukau City, faces three charges under the Firearms Act.

Lockett, who represented himself and had waived his right to interim name suppression, was one of six people who appeared in Auckland District Court after the police raids.

Lockett was granted bail on conditions that included surrendering his passport, non-communication with some co-defendants, not applying for a firearms licence and not attempting to possess any firearms.

The charges Lockett faces relate to alleged offences in January, April and June.
