A man has been arrested and will appear in court today after two meth labs were discovered.

The unemployed 46-year-old Tauranga man was charged after two search warrants were executed yesterday afternoon, Tauranga police said.

"Items related to the manufacture of methamphetamine were located at a rural address near Katikati as well as a residential address in Omokoroa," police said in a statement.

Environmental Science and Research (ESR) forensic scientists were examining the two addresses today.
