The charges faced by the man include possession for supply of methamphetamine, possession for supply of cannabis, and unlawful possession of a firearm.
He was scheduled to appear in Hastings District Court today.
Police located a sawn-off shotgun at one address and three rifles at the second address, along with methamphetamine, cannabis, and a significant amount of cash.
Both addresses are linked to the Mongrel Mob.
