11 arrested in $2m drug bust

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 said.

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.
