Detective Sergeant Steve Wescott says the items include methamphetamine, the drug GBL, $30,000 in cash, several firearms, a taser and high-value jewellery.

Two men, aged 30 and 44, and a 31-year-old woman face charges in relation to the possession and supply of methamphetamine.

They are due to appear in the Wellington District Court today.

Wescott says the arrests will make a significant dent in the availability of methamphetamine across Wellington.
