Four people have been arrested and charged with numerous drug offences after search warrants were executed at Darlinghurst and Surry Hills.
Officers attached to the Surry Hills Proactive Team have been investigating the alleged supply of prohibited drugs within the Surry Hills Local Area Command.
Following an exhaustive investigation, police yesterday (Tuesday 25 February 2014), executed four search warrants on houses in Darlinghurst and Surry Hills.
As a result of ongoing inquiries, police have arrested and charged three men – aged 23, 28 and 34 – and a 31-year-old woman.
They were charged with a total of 20 offences, including;
  • Ongoing supply prohibited drug;
  • Agree to supply prohibited drug;
  • Supply prohibited drug; and
  • Possess prohibited drug.
During the past few months, police have seized more than 380 ecstasy tablets, almost one litre of liquid GHB, cocaine and other prohibited drugs, with an estimated potential street value of more than $16,000.
All four were refused bail to appear before Central Local Court today (Wednesday 26 February 2014).
Surry Hills Local Area Command Crime Manager, Detective Inspector Craig Middleton, said the arrests were the result of a lot of hard work and dedication.
“A lot of time and preparation goes into these types of operations. This should be a warning to anyone who profits from the sale of prohibited drugs as we will target you.
“We believe we have dismantled an important drug syndicate, which is a great result particularly as we endeavour to provide a safe environment for everyone involved in the Sydney Gay and Lesbian Mardi Gras this weekend,” Detective Inspector Middleton said.
