    More arrests of people involved in drug smuggling across New Zealand's borders -- including baggage handlers and gang members

    More arrests of people involved in drug smuggling across New Zealand's borders -- including baggage handlers and gang members


    It follows 14 men and women being taken in to custody last month in a joint Police and Customs operation.

    It was revealed an organised criminal group was smuggling, or conspiring to smuggle, close to 500-kilos of methamphetamine from Malaysia and the US between January and October this year.

    Police allege six baggage handlers and eight associates, including two King Cobra gang members - were involved.

    They all denied the charges and elected a jury trial.
