Mass drug bust across lower North Island

NewsTalk ZB 17 March 2016
Family First Comment: We’re constantly told that if we decriminalise marijuana, that the gangs will have no funds. We’re also told that there is no link between marijuana and the dealing / consumption of other drugs. Both these messages are myths. Here’s yet another example from the past week. “Cannabis, methamphetamine, cash, cars, motorbikes and jet skis have all been seized. Detective Sergeant Shane Rongonui says in the last three years, police have restrained $14 million in assets from the gang, and laid around 1700 charges against patched members.”

Drugs, cars and cash have been seized in an extensive drug bust across the lower North Island.

60 police staff carried out raised on nine addresses in Upper Hutt, Titahi Bay, Paekakariki and Wairarapa today, focusing on the Head Hunters gang.

Four men and one woman have been charged in relation to methamphetamine dealing.
