Drug Arrest

Drugs charges for Porirua man

27th November 2009

The police say they’ve arrested a 44 year old Porirua man after discovering drugs and other items in his possession.

Members of the Police Traffic Alcohol Group stopped the driver in Melling, Lower Hutt, at about 10.30 pm last night and seized methamphetamine, a smoking pipe, two imitation firearms and a large amount of cash.

Road Policing Senior Sergeant, Doug Rowan, says the arrest has probably prevented further drugs and firearms offending by this person in the near future.

He says the man faces several charges and more are likely to follow.
