Two men have been arrested in East Auckland today, Wednesday 13 March as part of an operation into the sale and supply of illicit drugs in the area.
This morning, three simultaneous search warrants were executed in Glen Innes and Panmure by Auckland City CIB targeting the supply of methamphetamine.
Two arrests have so far been made as part of Operation East.
Detective Senior Sergeant Scott Armstrong says a quantity of methamphetamine, cocaine and ammunition was located and seized, along with a sum of cash in excess of $10,000.
Two men – aged 21 and 24 - were arrested and are expected in the Auckland District Court to face a number of drugs-related charges, including possession for supply of methamphetamine and cocaine.
