Methamphetamine Dealing Ring Busted

Methamphetamine Dealing Ring Busted


In March 2014 Counties Manukau Police Organised Crime Team commenced operation Cesium to investigate the sale and supply of methamphetamine throughout the Waiuku and Pukekohe community.

The operation terminated yesterday and today with the arrests of 11 people aged from 27 to 49 who have all been charged with supplying quantities of methamphetamine.

It is alleged the main target of the operation sold in excess of 2 kilograms of methamphetamine with a street value of 2 million dollars over a six month period.

Today Police have restrained assets and seized cash along with 30 grams of cannabis and located 85 grams of methamphetamine with a street value of $85,000.

Further arrests are pending and Police will continue their focus on targeting organised groups to prevent the sale of drugs into the community. "Acting on information relating to manufacture & supply of methamphetamine is a priority due to the harm it continues to cause in the community" says Detective Inspector Dave Lynch.

Police need the support of the community to continue to provide information about these activities occurring. Information can be supplied to the Counties Manukau Police on (09)2611300. Alternatively information can be provided anonymously to the organisation Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.
