Police have seized cars, cash, and hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of methamphetamine in a series of armed raids in Christchurch.

Officers carried out a number of searches of addresses and vehicles across the city.

At least one firearm was recovered and three men arrested.

Detective Sergeant Phillip Sparks said the raids were a message to drug criminals that police would not tolerate them making money out of drug users, and harming the community.

The men will appear in court tomorrow on a range of charges.
