The 40-year-old was granted interim name suppression when he appeared at the Auckland District Court this afternoon.

He has elected trial by jury and been remanded on bail.

A 48-year-old man and a 37-year-old woman arrested yesterday have also appeared in court on charges of importing methamphetamine.

The woman is also facing a money laundering charge.

Both were granted interim name suppression and remanded on bail.

Last week, police arrested six other people in raids on 10 Auckland properties, and they are not ruling out further arrests.
