Nelson Police AOS and CIB ended a 7 week operation when locating and arresting Mr Terry Jones at a local Nelson Motel at approximately 4am this morning.

Detective Sergeant Chris Roberts of Nelson police CIB said “Jones has been the subject of wide national publicity generated by police and we are confident that his arrest will have an impact in decreasing the supply, use and associated social carnage in our district methamphetamine so often causes”.

A substantial amount of what is believed to be methamphetamine was also located in the motel room where Mr Jones was located this morning.

Another male and a female who were also apprehended at the motel face charges in relation to this drug find.

Mr Roberts said “The successful result of this operation has come about through a steady stream of information provided by the public for which we are extremely grateful.”

Mr Jones will appear in the Nelson District Court on Monday 31st June 2014 to face charges in relation to this mornings find along with other charges that relate to the discovery of a portable clandestine laboratory and methamphetamine in a Nelson secure lock-up unit on 7th May 2014.
