© AAP Police say the cannabis supply in west Auckland has been significantly disrupted after information from the public led to the discovery of a large-scale commercial operation.

More than $100,000 in cash and 160 mature cannabis plants, some harvested and ready for sale, were seized after warrants were executed at four addresses.

Police believe the seizure of the cannabis plants has prevented estimated street sales of about $3 million.

Detective Sergeant Kelly Farrant says the search of the addresses came after a call to Crimestoppers.

"Information provided via the Crimestoppers information line is very valuable to police," Det Sgt Farrant said.

"In this case, it has led to the significant disruption of cannabis supply in west Auckland."

Two men were charged with cultivating cannabis and appeared in Waitakere District Court.
