Three properties have been searched and three people arrested after a series of burglaries in which chemicals used to make methamphetamine were stolen.

Detective senior sergeant Dave Thornton said following recent burglaries in the Hutt Valley area, including a school and GNS Science, search warrants were carried out this morning on two Alicetown properties and another in Hutt Park.

Armed offenders squad went into the properties first, and then officers dressed in chemical protection clothing and gas masks.

Chemicals used in the manufacture of meth amphetamine were found at one of the Alicetown properties, and three men were arrested and will appear in Hutt Valley District Court today, said Mr Thornton.
