A 26-year-old Te Teko man is facing numerous charges following the execution of a search warrant at a Te Teko house yesterday.
Police located more than 3,000 bags of synthetic drugs, packaged and ready for sale, along with a further 115 grams of bulk synthetic drugs.
The street value of the synthetic drugs is estimated to be approximately $65,000.
Police also found more than $30,000 in cash, around 700 grams of cannabis, a range of different calibres of ammunition, and a stolen 2020 Toyota Hilux valued at $52,000.
The man is scheduled to appear in Whakatāne District Court on 16 April, charged with possession of cannabis for supply, unlawfully taking a motor vehicle, and possession of ammunition.
Further charges are likely, pending the results of ESR analysis of the synthetic drugs seized.
