A 45-year-old man has been arrested on drugs and firearms charges after police raided a Christchurch property on Thursday afternoon.
Detective Senior Sergeant Joel Syme said police recovered drugs and firearms during a search warrant executed at an address in Bishopdale about 3.30pm.
He said as a result of the search, a man has been charged with firearms, drugs and restricted weapons offences.
“It is disappointing to see these individuals diverting police resources during what is already a very busy time with the Covid-19 response.”
The man is due to appear in the Christchurch District Court on Saturday.
