Seven facing drug charges

By Corey Charlton

A recent Eastern Police drug raid has led to seven people facing dozens of drug charges, dated from March to August this year.

The seven were arrested on August 12, after a police investigation culminated in searches by about 30 police officers of six houses and four vehicles in Napier and Hastings that day.

Charges include selling, possessing and dealing LSD, ecstasy, cannabis, methamphetamine and GBL.

Five of the arrests were in Napier and two were in Hastings, with the alleged offenders aged between 25 and 49.

Stuart John Graham, Shannon Rose Hislop, Raewyn Marie Langridge, Keith Ronald Lawson, Dylan John Mathews, Dion Phillip Silva and Aaron Blair Macfarlane are those alleged to have been involved in the drug ring.

They are due to appear in court again early next month.
