Operation Shiloh - Drugs & Cash Seized

Operation Shiloh - Drugs & Cash Seized

Waitakere CIB has seized almost half a million dollars in cash, four kilograms of pseudo methamphetamine, and a kilo of gold as a result of a number of search warrants that were executed late yesterday.

Five motor vehicles have also been seized in the raids which were carried out at properties in Metropolitan Auckland yesterday evening, Thursday 1 November 2012.

Assisted by staff from throughout the Upper North region police executed more than a dozen search warrants. Eight males have been arrested on drug charges related to the manufacture and supply of methamphetamine.

Acting Detective Inspector Stan Brown, Field Crime Manager for the Waitematā Police District has been leading the operation. He says a Clan Lab explosion at an address in Glendene in December 2011 was the catalyst for this lengthy police investigation dubbed Operation Shiloh.

“We’ve stopped this group's drug dealing activity in its tracks. At the same time we have arrested the main players responsible for local and regional distribution of meth,” he said.

“The success of this operation is pleasing to investigators. As a result of this success the supply and availability of methamphetamine in Auckland will be reduced. It’s another major step towards the greater goal of stopping drug dealing on our streets.”

"We will minimise the harm from organised crime and drugs at every opportunity."

"Our investigations are continuing and more search warrants are being executed, on these offenders home addresses and known associates to reduce the effects that methamphetamine is still having,” Acting Detective Inspector Stan Brown said.
