Twenty-five people have been arrested in western Bay of Plenty following police raids that targeted drugs and stolen property.

Detective Senior Sergeant Greg Turner says 26 properties were searched over the past two days and methamphetamine, cannabis and ecstasy were seized.

He says those charged include members of the Headhunters, Filthy Few, Mongrel Mob, Black Power and Nomad gangs.

They will appear in the Tauranga District Court over the next week.
