    A pat on the back for Kiwi cops who've taken on a trans-national drug operation

    A pat on the back for Kiwi cops who've taken on a trans-national drug operation


    Police have arrested ten people and seized up to five million dollars worth of drugs in 'Operation Mystic'.

    It's alleged the group are part of a syndicate that's imported more than a tonne of methamphetamine, MDMA, cocaine and ephedrine.

    Police Minister Stuart Nash says an additional 2000 cops has enabled big drug busts like this.

    He says Police involved have worked hard and remained professional.

    Nine of the 10 arrested have appeared in the Auckland District Court, and they're expected to reappear in the coming months.
