Last week, The Post Newspaper reported Harrisville Road was closed with armed Police blocking the roads. After receiving an overwhelming public response we can now reveal the cause of the road closure.
Harrisville Road was closed in the early hours of Friday 27 October, as Police executed two search warrants.
Detective Sergeant Richard Bull of Counties Manukau Police said as a result of the search warrants, Police uncovered an active methamphetamine lab.
“A considerable number of firearms were also seized,” he said.
As a result a number of people have been arrested and enquiries are ongoing with further charges likely.
The planned Police operation was the second bust in the Franklin area, with another P-lab discovered in Awhitu in September.
