Eleven people have been arrested following a police operation
targeting the sale and supply of methamphetamine throughout
Waiuku and Pukekohe.
Operation Cesium finished yesterday after netting 11 people
aged from 27 to 49 who have all been charged with supplying
quantities of methamphetamine, Detective Inspector Dave Lynch
It's alleged the main target of the operation sold in excess
of 2kg of methamphetamine with a street value of $2 million
over a six month period.
Today police seized assets and cash along with 30g of
cannabis and found 85g of methamphetamine with a street value
of $85,000, Mr Lynch said.
Further arrests we are expected and police would continue
their focus on targeting organised groups to prevent the sale
of drugs into the community.
"Acting on information relating to manufacture and supply of
methamphetamine is a priority due to the harm it continues to
cause in the community," Mr Lynch said.
