Two people have been charged after police raided an alleged methamphetamine supply ring in the Hutt Valley.

A 37-year-old female and a 38-year-old male have been charged with selling, and conspiring to sell, methamphetamine.

They will appear in Lower Hutt District Court this afternoon.

Senior sergeant Steve Harwood said police searched two houses in Waiwhetu and Newlands this morning, and arrested and charged two people as a result.

Further charges were expected to be laid, he said.

"Members of the Armed Offenders Squad were used at one address and members of the Police Support Unit at the other.

We were able to carry out these warrants because of valuable information that we received from the public regarding suspicious activity.

"Today's arrests are part of our ongoing commitment to the fight against methamphetamine."
