Isaiah John Te Hira admitted his part in New Zealand’s biggest methamphetamine seizure, which saw 469kg of meth concealed in motor vehicle parts, Stuff reports. Te Hira appeared at the High Court in Auckland on Thursday in front of Justice Kit Toogood, and admitted importing 469 kilograms of meth with others in August 2019. He also admitted to being in possession of the Class A drug for supply. Te Hira’s lawyer Maria Pecotic said his part in the drug operation was as a “catcher” and not as a principal offender.
