Houses, cars, $100k seized from alleged meth dealer

Wellington police have confiscated around $1.7 million worth of cash and assets from two people accused of being in a methamphetamine supply ring.

In an early morning raid on Thursday, police arrested a man who has been charged with two counts of supplying the class A drug.

Among the assets taken are "well over" $1 million of property belonging to the man, including two houses, two vehicles and bank accounts totalling $105,000, which police alleged came from the drug trade.

A woman appeared in court last month facing three representative charges relating to possessing and supplying methamphetamine and cannabis.

A house belonging to the woman was also seized today.
