Northland Police seized cash, a firearm and arrested one thug in Kawakawa this week.
A warrant was carried out at a property on Monday in relation to alleged drug offending.
Police located at the address a large quantity of Methamphetamine, with an estimated street value of around $90,000 NZD.
50kgs of Iodine pellets were also located at the address, with an estimated street value of around $125,000 NZD.
A firearm was located, and more than $100,000 in cash at the address.
A stolen caravan worth $40,000 from Tauranga was recovered.
The man, aged 47, is facing several drugs, weapons and other serious charges. He is due to appear in the Kaikohe District Court on December 14.
Detective Inspector Bridget Doell says Police are committed to targeting drug offenders who prey on and profit from those who are vulnerable in our community.
“Police and the public have no tolerance for these offenders in our society.”
“Northland Police are also continuing to work with our partners, through initiatives such as Te Ara Oranga, by identifying and supporting those who are using drugs such as methamphetamine so they can get the help they need.”
“We also want our community to assist us by alerting us to any suspicious activity involving drug distribution.”
