A major drugs operation involving methamphetamine and cannabis valued at more than $250,000 has been uncovered by Eastern Bay of Plenty police.

Police arrested 38 people on 102 drug-related charges during the two-week operation, in which 28 Eastern Bay addresses were searched.

Methamphetamine, LSD, ecstasy, cannabis oil, cannabis, cash, stolen property and firearms were recovered, SunLive reported.

The total street value of the drugs seized was more than $250,000, Detective Sergeant Darren Thomas said.

"What we found particularly disappointing was the number of children at these addresses with no choice about being brought up in these dangerous environments," Thomas said.

"We are working alongside other agencies to ensure the ongoing safety of these children."
