A suspected methamphetamine supply ring has been busted following a series of police raids in Christchurch today.

Detective Sergeant Phillip Sparks said the Canterbury Organised Crime Unit exposed the ring
after searches at a number of addresses and vehicles across the city.

"Hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of methamphetamine, cash, motor vehicles and synthetic drugs were seized in connection to the ring.

"At least one firearm has been recovered and three men were arrested."

The men will appear in court tomorrow on a range of charges.

Police would continue the fight against methamphetamine distribution in Christchurch, Sparks said.

"This is a message to drug criminals and organised crime groups that police won't tolerate them making money out of drug users and harming the community."

Police wouldn't comment further as the matter was before the courts.
