Yesterday police seized the 1955 Ford Customline car as part of an ongoing operation to strip people of assets they have acquired through the sale and supply of methamphetamine.
In a statement Sergeant Al Fenwick says police want to ensure those selling meth in the Kawerau community "aren’t able to build and enjoy nest eggs of assets on the back of the suffering and misery of others".
"As part of our follow up in Kawerau we are looking to strengthen and build resilience in the community and are working with other agencies to support those that have been affected by methamphetamine.
