Police have seized $3 million-$4 million worth of meth from a rural property north of Auckland.

A 48-year-old man from rural Rodney faces four charges
in relation to the seizure of around 3-4kg of methamphetamine
at a rural Kaukapakapa address.

In addition to the methamphetamine police found $20,200 cash, materials, equipment, unfinished liquid methamphetamine and chemicals.

One kilogram of crystallised methamphetamine was found in a glass pot.

Detective inspector Hayden Mander said the results of the
month-long investigation can reassure the community that more methamphetamine is off the streets.

"The devastating effects of methamphetamine are wide-reaching, which is why
we continue to target methamphetamine manufacturers and dealers as a
priority."

The arrested man faces two charges of manufacturing methamphetamine,
one charge of possession of equipment materials and precursor materials with
intent to manufacture methamphetamine and one charge of possession of
methamphetamine for supply.

He has been remanded in custody to reappear on September 9 at the North Shore
District Court.
