Two New Plymouth men caught during Operation Puff, an undercover drug sting targeting the Rebels gang, have admitted their role.

In the High Court in New Plymouth, Ryan Adam Blackburn, a labourer, and Atamu Lee Manuel, a former Crave Club DJ, both of whom are in their 20s, pleaded guilty to drug offences.

Blackburn admitted that between May 19 and September 2 last year he conspired with others to supply a class C controlled drug, ecstasy.

Manuel admitted two counts of selling ecstasy over the same dates.

They will be sentenced on February 11.

Another 11 people, 10 men and a woman, charged with drug offences after the covert surveillance operation, were further remanded until December 20.
