Police raided a Dunedin home and uncovered some serious hardware.

Specialist officers recovering thousands of dollars of stolen property during a search warrant at a South Dunedin property on Wednesday.

Many of the items were builder's tools and equipment. Police also found a firearm, ammunition and drugs.

A 30-year-old man was arrested at the house and would appear in the Dunedin District court on Tuesday.

"This is a significant seizure and reflective of the police focus on gangs and criminal activity," Otago Coastal Area Commander Inspector Marty Gray said.

Police wanted to hear from any other victims who had building equipment or tools stolen recently.

Anyone with information about gang activity, drugs or firearms could call 105 to report it, or anonymously via Crimestoppers on 0800 555 111.

It was billed as a place to alleviate the pressure of the growing number of freedom campers on seaside communities – and it appears to be working.

Dunedin's Thomas Burns St car park was converted to a freedom camping site in November 2018 after the city council accessed a $79,000 government grant.

The new site, capable of accommodating 65 vehicles for a maximum of two nights each, was kitted out with a tap, portaloos, and a solar powered rubbish-compacting bin.

The site, nestled between the city's railway station and industrial area, was initially slow to attract freedom campers away from popular coastal communities such as Brighton, Warrington and Ocean View, but word quickly spread.
