Drugs And Firearms Seized Following Hastings Search Warrant


A search warrant at a Hastings property yesterday saw Police locate and seize 
drugs and firearms, including a restricted firearm.

The Hawke's Bay Gang Focus Unit, and Precision Targeting Team executed the 
search warrant at the Park Road North address yesterday afternoon.

Methamphetamine, MDMA, and cannabis allegedly packaged for sale were found 
along with two military style firearms.

"One of the firearms was a restricted weapon and we located hundreds of 
rounds of ammunition," says Sergeant Kane Foote.

"Locating these illicit drugs and illegally held firearms was a significant 
result and we're pleased to have taken them out of circulation where they 
can't cause harm within our community."

The sole occupant at the address, a 35-year-old man, was arrested and will 
appear in the Hastings District Court today.

He will face charges including possession of methamphetamine for supply, 
possession of a Class B drug (MDMA) for supply, possession of cannabis for 
supply, unlawful possession of a restricted weapon (Firearm), unlawful 
possession of a firearm and possession of ammunition.
