    Christchurch police have arrested two people accused of importing cocaine

    Christchurch police have arrested two people accused of importing cocaine


    Late last month, Customs intercepted a package at the International Mail Centre in Auckland with 1.5-kilograms of liquid cocaine inside.

    Police raided a Christchurch house on Wednesday and found cocaine and a significant amount of cash.

    A 76-year-old man was arrested and charged with importing a Class A controlled drug and possession of cocaine for supply.

    A 25-year-old woman was then arrested yesterday and also charged with importing cocaine.

    Both will appear in court later this month.
