A ''significant'' quantity of cannabis, powders and pills has been found in Otatara.
Acting Senior Sergeant Wing Ng said the drugs were found in area with fairly dense bush cover but police could not be more specific about where they were found or exactly what they were.
The find came after an anonymous tip off from a member of the public.
"We can say that this is a fairly large amount and we are interested to hear from anyone who has any information about how these drugs came to be in this location and who might have put them there," he said.
Inquiries would be carried out to establish who had placed the drugs there and why but initial indications were that it may have been an attempt to conceal the drugs, he said.
Anyone with information should contact the Invercargill police on 03 211 0429 or provide information anonymously via Crimestoppers 0800 555 111.
