Police seized firearms, drugs and stolen property in Raupunga in Hawkes Bay.

Police seized firearms, drugs and stolen goods in Raupunga in Hawke’s Bay and charged two people on Friday.

A statement said Wairoa police searched properties in the area as part of Operation Cobalt, which aimed to crack down on gangs and seek those with arrest warrants.

A 22-year-old man has been charged with possession of an assault weapon and failure to stop at flashing red/blue lights and will appear in court in Wairoa on Saturday, while another man has been charged with cannabis and firearms offences.

“These arrests and search warrants should send a clear signal of our commitment to holding to account those who believe they may be operating outside the law,” a police spokesman said.
