A number of search warrants were executed in Hamilton last night.

A 50-year-old man has been charged with participating in an organised crime group, importing methamphetamine, selling/supplying methamphetamine, and possession of methamphetamine for supply.

A 47-year-old female gang associate is facing similar charges.

Commercial quantities of methamphetamine, GBL and cannabis were located, along with cash and drug paraphernalia.

The arrests are the result of an ongoing operation that targets the supply of methamphetamine and other illicit drugs across the district, said Waikato District investigations manager, Detective Inspector Graham Pitkethley.

“Waikato Police is committed to investigating the organised criminal groups that continue to supply methamphetamine and other drugs to our most vulnerable members of our communities, taking money out of their pockets to fund their own greed.”

Both the man and woman will appear in the Hamilton District Court today.
