Six people have been arrested in a two-day sting targeting
methamphetamine supply ring in Manawatu.
Ten search warrants were executed - eight at residential
properties and two at commercial properties.
Four men and two women were arrested and a small amount of
methamphetamine and stolen property - including a digital
projector - seized.
"We believe that this network was distributing
methamphetamine in the Palmerston North area, and a team of
officers from Manawatu, Whanganui, and Wellington supported
by specialist pPolice dogs carried out the search warrants,"
said Detective Sergeant Dave Thompson of the Manawatu CIB.
"This is a major success for both the police and the public
of Palmerston North. By disrupting and dismantling the supply
of illicit drugs we can ensure our communities are happy,
healthy, and safe places to live."
