Police seize stolen digger in raid

1:33 pm on 22 August 2014

A digger is part of a stash of stolen property seized by police during a raid on a property north of Auckland.

The raid on the Rodney house is the second in just a few weeks.

During the first raid, police found methamphetamine, drug lab equipment, firearms and about $4500 in cash.

On Wednesday, at the same property, the police found a digger, trailer, generator, power tools and a motorbike, all of which police say have been confirmed as stolen.

Two men have been arrested and charged with multiple theft, drugs and firearms charges.

A 50-year-old man will appear in the Waitakere District Court next week and a 52-year-old man will appear in the same court in October.
