More arrests likely after drug seizures

3:49 pm on 5 December 2013

Police say further arrests are likely after 40 raids in Auckland and Waikato that netted more than $120 million worth of drugs, cars, property, and cash.

Those targeted are accused of involvement in the importation and distribution of Contac NT, a Chinese cold and flu medicine used as a precursor for methamphetmanine (P).

Police say 330kg was seized - enough to make 100kg of P at a street value of $100 million.

Thirty people have been arrested so far.
