A man has been charged with supplying synthetic drugs following a police raid in Horowhenua that netted nearly four kilograms of material used in the manufacture of these drugs.
This is a significant quantity and once manufactured the materials would have an estimated street value of $100,000, said Detective Sergeant Karen Heald of Levin CIB.
A pump action shotgun and 56 rounds of ammunition were also located during a search of the man’s address at Manakau in Horowhenu, Ms Heald said.
The 26-year-old has been charged with supplying a psychoactive substance (synthetic drugs) and bailed to appear in the Levin District Court on Thursday.
Synthetic drugs cause significant harm to the community and can be fatal to users, Ms Heald said.
Police are committed to holding those responsible for manufacturing and dealing these dangerous substances to account, she said.
