A high ranking officer has been revealed as the Northland man accused of selling drugs.

Former Police Sergeant Mike Blowers was charged with supplying methamphetamine and selling cannabis in March but his name and all details identifying him were suppressed.

In May a Judge ruled there were insufficient grounds to continue suppression.

Last week his lawyer took the matter to the High Court but the application was declined and suppression lapsed this afternoon at 5pm.

Blowers is facing a charge of supplying the class a drug methamphetamine and one of selling cannabis to a person over 18.

Its alleged both offences occurred between June 1 2011 and June 30 2012 while he was employed as the Head of the Northland Organised Crime unit in Whangarei.

Blowers left the police in March. He was charged two weeks later.

Police Minister Anne Tolley said the force took these allegations very seriously.

"It's always very disappointing, and an officer in front of the court is one too many.

"You have to put it in some sort of context, there are 12,000 people who work with the police, and they do a fantastic job."

Today's revelations follow the arrest of Waitakere Constable Lou Perese last week and Constable Peter Pakau in May.
