Four men aged between 25 and 45 were arrested yesterday and face charges including production, supply and possession of MDMA, ketamine and eutylone.

Detective Inspector Stu Harvey said a large amount of the drugs were being sold as MDMA but were believed to be eutylone, a synthetic stimulant.

About $20,000 in cash was also seized.

The four men are due to appear in the Dunedin District Court today.
