The National Organised Crime Group executed three search warrants yesterday at two addresses on Waitākere Road and a property in Whenuapai.

Police say they located items used to manufacture methamphetamine, a firearm and ammunition and more than $15,000 in cash.

A 52-year old man and a 47-year-old woman now face a number of drug manufacture charges in the Waitākere District Court.

A 49-year-old man has been charged with unlawfully possessing a firearm and methamphetamine.
