There has been a staggering increase in the amount of methamphetamine being seized at New Zealand's borders. Figures released to Newstalk ZB under the Official Information Act show the quantity of the drug being intercepted by Customs has increased more than 35 times in the past few years. In 2009, a little under 10 kilograms of the class A drugs were seized. But up until the end of August this year, more than 357 kilograms was stopped at the border by Customs officials. That's a street value of more than $357 million. 353 out of the 357 kilograms was intercepted in Auckland. Drug Foundation CEO Ross Bell said the surge can be put down to a flexible drug market. "Increasingly we're seeing a move away from methamphetamine being manufactured in New Zealand...a few years ago we saw ingredients for methamphetamine coming across the border," he said. Addiction Treatment National Committee Chair Dr Vanessa Caldwell said the surge in seizures isn't being felt on the streets. "Certainly the communities are telling us that it's easy to get on the streets and it's very prevalent." "There's still some getting through."
