The Minister for Police has slammed white collar crime as the driving force behind New Zealand's drug trade.

Stuart Nash says that while gangs seem like the main offenders, it's the well-dressed accountants and lawyers holding the purse strings.

His comments follow an international drug bust, where up to $5 million-worth of drugs was seized by police.
