Police seize drugs, cash and firearms in Manurewa raids

Counties Manukau Police have arrested two men and seized methamphetamine, firearms and cash during search warrants today.

Police say a number of properties in Manurewa were searched this morning by officers from the Counties Manukau Organised Crime Unit.

Four firearms and ammunition were also recovered as a result of today’s operation.

A 32-year-old man has been charged in relation to supplying methamphetamine. A 26-year-old man is facing firearms-related charges.

He is also facing assault and wilful damage charges following an investigation into a firearms incident on Christmas Road, Manurewa in December.

Both men appeared in Manukau District Court today.

Police say the investigation is ongoing and further charges are likely.

Anyone who has any information relating to drug dealing activity or the unlawful possession of firearms is encouraged to contact Police or Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
