Two more people have been arrested over the seizure of a kilogram of methamphetamine which had been on a flight from Dubai.

The drug was allegedly found last Friday evening when Customs discovered it in the suitcase of a 25-year-old man who had arrived on an Emirates flight from Dubai.

The flight had originated in Mexico.

Two unemployed Auckland residents were arrested in central Auckland early this morning.

A 23-year-old man and a 30-year-old woman will appear in the Manukau District Court today charged with Importing and Possession of a Class A drug (Methamphetamine) for supply.
