Three people have been arrested in a series of drug raids in New Zealand, with four people being held for questioning.
Police said they were working on a number of charges in relation to the raids.
A total of seven people have now been arrested and five people have remained in custody, with a further three people being questioned, police said.
The investigation is continuing.
On Tuesday, police raided a warehouse in Northland and arrested five men and two women.
On Wednesday, a raid at a warehouse on the west coast of the country also led to the arrest of four men and a woman.
The investigation into the drug raids is continuing and police would like to speak to anyone who may have been in the area during the raids, police spokesperson Detective Superintendent Steve Dickson said.
“It is believed that the four men have been charged in relation with importing, manufacturing and supplying cannabis,” he said.
“There have been a number that have been held for further questioning.”
Police have said the raids were part of a wider operation that involved three other states, as well as Australia and the UK.
There are now no reports of anyone being injured in the raids but police said they had received reports of people being assaulted and property damaged.
In New Zealand on Wednesday, police detained a man at a property on Taranaki’s southern coast.
Police said the man had allegedly stolen money from the property’s owner and was wanted for questioning over a drug trafficking operation.
Police have not said if the man was a suspected member of the Black Knights drug group.
New Zealand is a “safe haven” for drug traffickers because the country is not one of the world’s most dangerous drug markets, Detective Superintendent Dickson told reporters.
Earlier this week, police arrested a man and woman at a house on the south coast of New Zealand.
They are still looking for two more people, who are in custody.
