Two people have been arrested after the discovery of a methamphetamine lab in Auckland this morning.

Avondale police Acting Detective Senior Sergeant Richard Sami said officers searched properties in Mt Roskill and Albany this morning and uncovered a large, active clandestine lab at one of them.

"This was a complex lab in operation that was used for the purpose of manufacturing methamphetamine, which as we know causes significant harm in our community," he said.

A 35-year-old man from Albany and a 26-year-old man from Auckland Central have both been charged with multiple offences relating to the manufacturing, possession and supply of methamphetamine.


Sami said he wanted to reassure the community that the police would continue to actively seek out those responsible for making and supplying this harmful drug and hold them to account to keep communities safe.

The two men are due to appear in the Auckland District Court today.
