Six people alleged to have been involved in supplying drugs, including methamphetamine, in Palmerston North are set to head to trial later this year.
Zane Michael Marsh, 20, Kimberley Sarah Meihana, 28, Jeremiah Christopher Sua, 43, Terry Weston, 38, Vanessa Marie Smith, 39, and Scott Michael Robin Fraser, 37, have appeared in the High Court in Palmerston North on various charges related to Operation Cargo.
The operation involved police raiding 10 properties searched over two days in December last year.
Methamphetamine and stolen property were found at the properties.
All six alleged offenders have pleaded not guilty to various charges.
Yesterday, Justice Simon France said a trial was likely to take place in November.
