NZ police charge woman for supplying cannabis to students

A 30-year-old woman who reportedly sold cannabis to high school students in Wairarapa is due in court next week charged with possessing cannabis for supply.

Wairarapa Community Section yesterday executed a search warrant at a Greytown address where the woman was subsequently arrested.

Sergeant Richie Day says his team had received information from the community and from community organisations regarding local dealing of cannabis to young people.

“This activity is a real concern, and we are very grateful to the community for bringing these issues to us,” Sergeant Day says.

“Anyone who causes such harm in our community, especially when it involved young people, we will look to hold to account.”

We continue to encourage the community to report anything unusual or suspicious to us.

You may think your information is inconsequential, but it could be the missing piece that enables us to put together details which lead to a prosecution.

The woman charged by Police is due in Masterton District Court on July 11.
