    The police have cracked down on another major drug operation

    The police have cracked down on another major drug operation


    Operation Worthington seized 44 kilograms of methamphetamine and close to a million dollars cash, in 18 raids over the past two days.

    Detective Inspector Paul Newman says this money should be used to feed, clothe and educate children.

    Instead, drug use and addiction puts a huge strain on our health system and our community services.

    He says they'll keep targeting these people.

    21 people have been arrested, facing more than 200 charges.

    The accused appear in the Auckland District court over the next few days.
