Drugs seized in three raids

Drug raids in the Wanaka area yesterday netted a haul that included dozens of opium poppies, MDMA, LSD and cocaine.

While executing three search warrants, police discovered the aforementioned drugs, including more than 80 poppy plants used for extracting opium, at one address.

They also found an indoor cannabis plot with 20 plants, and a quantity of dried cannabis head and plant material.

A 44-year-old man was arrested and appeared in the Queenstown District Court on several charges including possession of methamphetamine.

Police said they would continue to target drugs in the Otago Lakes Central area.
