Police are looking for two men after the discovery of an illegal drugs lab in the Far North at the weekend.

A methamphetamine-manufacturing plant was found on Saturday, when police searched a rural property at Kareponia, north of Kaitaia.

The empty house was cordoned off for most of the weekend, while forensic tests were conducted.

Police say they know the identity of two men who were staying there and want to talk to them about drug-related matters.
