Three people connected to the Tribesmen gang have been arrested following drug raids across four properties in south Auckland.

Police found large quantities of ephedrine, a precursor in making methamphetamine, along with $20,000 worth of cannabis during today's raids at houses in the suburbs of Flatbush, Otara and Manurewa.

The half kilogram of ephedrine is valued around $60,000 but if cooked into methamphetamine it has a potential street value of $375,000.

A 21-year-old man and patched member of the Tribesmen was arrested along with two 29-year-olds.

They face a raft of charges including possession and supply of Class B and C substances.
