Three people will appear in the Tauranga District Court this morning charged with arson and drug related offences following a major police operation in Katikati yesterday.

A 35-year-old man from Katikati, a 37-year-old man from Mateku and a 26-year-old woman from Tauranga are all jointly charged with arson and conspiring to manufacture methamphetamine following a fire in Katikati which occurred as police executed a drugs warrant.

Police will return to the Park Road scene today to establish the cause of the fire. Investigators said that until that examination was complete it was not possible to confirm whether or not there was a methamphetamine lab at the site.

How excited are you about the 2014 Commonwealth Games?

It's gold, bring it on

It's okay, like a watered-down Olympics

Not really - but I'll be once NZ serve up some dramatics.

Old episodes of Friends are more exciting.
