Detective Inspector Dave Lynch said the operation was aimed at making a statement against drug dealing in South Auckland.
He said it showed 'tinnie houses' were hubs for criminal activity.
"The results of the last two weeks highlight why drug dealing houses are being targeted by police, and why communities need to join together to send a clear message that drug dealing houses won't be tolerated in their neighbourhoods."
