Arrest after warrants carried out in Oamaru

A man has been arrested following drugs, ammunition and imitation pistols being seized in the Oamaru area on Wednesday.

Acting Senior Sergeant Anthony Bond said Dunedin police assisted Oamaru police in carrying out six warrants in the Oamaru west and Waitaki Bridge area.

It was a part of an ongoing investigation into the sale and supply of methamphetamine, MDMA, and cannabis.

A number of items were seized, including methamphetamine, cannabis, cash, phones, ammunition and imitation pistols, he said.

"Investigations are still ongoing but charges are likely."

A 36-year-old man was arrested and appeared in the Dunedin District Court yesterday morning, charged with burglary, theft and driving while disqualified.
