Million dollar drug bust after clan lab discovery

Million dollar drug bust after clan lab discovery


Wellington Police have executed several new search warrants after the clan lab bust at an inner city apartment in the early hours of Friday 7 March 2014. After the scene was examined by ESR scientists and the Police clan lab team, investigators executed another three search warrants at inner city addresses and seized and searched four vehicles.

These searches have resulted in more than a million dollars worth of crystal methamphetamine being seized along with $30,000 cash.

Three men and a woman have been charged with methamphetamine-related offences. Two will next appear in the Wellington District Court today, 12 March 2014, with one facing a further methamphetamine-related charge. The other two will appear in the Wellington District Court on 28 March 2014.

Detective Inspector Darrin Thomson says “These arrests are another blow to the methamphetamine supply chain in Wellington and is a continuation of our operations off the back of a two million dollar methamphetamine seizure in December 2013.”

“The public continues to be our eyes and ears and this discovery shows that it can happen anywhere. Information from the public ensures that the unlawful activity of such groups is brought to a stop. The community impact of methamphetamine continues to be a cause misery which preys on the vulnerable.”

The investigation team continue to gather evidence of this group's offending which is now before the Courts.

Mapp’s attempted defence of the SAS on RNZ this morning unintentionally indicated that collective punishment was baked into the planning exercise for the raid, and also into how the raid proceeded on the ground. More>>
