Police executed search warrants in Napier and Hastings today, where three women and three men now face a variety of charges.

Firearms, large quantities of cash and methamphetamine, LSD, cannabis and equipment used to manufacture methamphetamine were seized.

Detective Inspector Mike Foster said the operation was successful.

"We are completely committed to exposing and apprehending those who choose to deal harmful drugs.

"The physical and social carnage that many of these drugs cause to our communities, especially methamphetamine, is unacceptable and we are committed to lessening that harm and holding those responsible to account."
