Hawke's Bay police have arrested three people and seized an air rifle, $6000 and more than six grams of methamphetamine after searching two properties in Maraenui yesterday.
Police say they also found other items believed to be stolen and were investigating where they came from.
Detective Sergeant Kristopher Payne said the arrests were a good result.
"Meth destroys our communities so any chance to remove any amount of it from the streets is a win for us."
