Two of the three people arrested following the explosion of a Katikati methamphetamine lab have been bailed.

Tracey Angela Farrow, 26, from Tauranga, and Terence William Jones, 35, from Katikati, appeared in Tauranga District Court today.

They were jointly charged with arson and conspiring to manufacture methamphetamine for supply after a fire was deliberately lit when police stormed a Park Rd property on Sunday. A series of loud explosions were heard and neighbouring residents were told to stay indoors.

Maketu man Karl Goldsbury, 37, the third person who faces the same charges, did not seek bail and is due back in court on January 23.

Farrow and Jones were bailed to reappear in court for a status hearing on February 5.
