Members of the Polaris Joint Waterfront Taskforce have arrested three men following an investigation into the supply of prohibited drugs by a man working for an international air cargo company.
In July 2014, the Polaris Joint Waterfront Taskforce formed Operation Apterous to investigate an air cargo company employee who was allegedly involved in the supply of methylamphetamine.
Around 3pm on Wednesday (29 October 2014), officers attached to the Polaris Joint Waterfront Taskforce arrested a 44-year-old Wattle Grove man near Bankstown.
A short time later, officers arrested a 48-year-old man at Beverly Hills and a 46-year-old man at Hurstville.
Following the arrests, search warrants were executed at homes in Wattle Grove and Narwee, and at a business in Hurstville.
Methylamphetamine, drug paraphernalia and electronic equipment were seized during the warrants.
The 44-year-old man was charged with ongoing drug supply and bail refused. He appeared in Burwood Local Court yesterday (Thursday 30 October 2014), where he was again refused bail to next appear on Wednesday 5 November 2014.
The 48-year-old man was also charged with ongoing drug supply and refused bail. He appeared in Kogarah Local Court yesterday, where he was again bail refused to next appear in Sutherland Local Court today (Friday 31 October 2014).
The 46-year-old man was charged with two counts of drug supply before being granted bail to appear at Kogarah Local Court on Tuesday 2 December 2014.
The Commander of the Polaris Joint Waterfront Taskforce, Detective Superintendent Nick Bingham, commended the officers attached to Operation Apterous for their outstanding investigative work.
“The Polaris officers working this case have delivered another excellent investigation, dismantling a drug supply syndicate involved in the distribution of methylamphetamine.
“Methylamphetamine is a drug that we see, daily, having an adverse impact on the community. In particular, it has a profound effect on the families of those who are addicted and the emergency workers who respond to methylamphetamine-related incidents,” Det Supt Bingham said.
The Polaris Joint Waterfront Taskforce comprises the NSW Police Force, Australian Federal Police, Australian Customs and Border Protection Service and Australian Crime Commission. It is one of three such multi-agency taskforces on the Australian east coast targeting serious and organised crime in the maritime sector and supply chain.
