Record drug haul (West Coast helicopter recovery)
An Air Force-piloted Iroquois helicopter -- nicknamed the Grasshopper by locals -- has hauled away a total of nearly 8740 plants.
The haul was up 16 per cent, or around 1200 plants, on last summer largely because of the good growing conditions.
Sergeant Russell Glue, of Hokitika police, said the largest plot was in Buller, at the northern West Coast, where between 500 and 1000 plants were found.
Glue said police could not disclose the street value of the cannabis recovered.
Nationally last growing season, police recovered and destroyed more than 100,000 plants and arrested more than 700 people
Well wipty dooooo..... and this taxpayer funded grift, er, I mean initiative has made what difference ?
May be this is why the Police were too busy to attend this weeks BEYOND 2008 drug policy consultation!
