More than $100,000 worth of meth has been seized by police after an early morning raid in Northland.

Police searched a property north of Whangarei yesterday.

They found 154 grams of methamphetamine, a meth lab, a .22 calibre pistol, $21,000 in cash and property thought to be stolen.

Two men, both 30, have been arrested and charged with possession of methamphetamine for supply, unlawful possession of a firearm and unlawful possession of ammunition.

Police said though this was a large quantity of drugs with a high street value, drug dealers and manufacturers were still causing harm to communities.

Anyone with information about illegal drug trading can contact Crimestoppers anonymously on 0800 555 111.
