The Auckland City Police Child Exploitation Team (CET) executed search warrants at the Artizanz Apartments in Eden Terrace address this morning and arrested three people, one a 16 year-old girl who was in breach of her bail conditions.
The others - a 56 year-old man and a 33 year-old man - will appear in the Auckland District Court today on drug and fines related charges.
The Armed Offenders Squad assisted with this morning's warrants. No shots were fired although imitation firearms were recovered from the scene.
Six apartments in the complex were the focus of the search. Several items have been recovered and the CET investigation is ongoing.
Anyone who is familiar with the address and those caught up in today's operation, should contact Police with any information that might assist the Child Exploitation Team's investigation.
