Polaris Waterfront taskforce operation


Just checked, system of Organised crime is still up and running.  They factor in so many drug busts a week.  The money, the police have really not caught the money when the high up players never touch the drugs, so Please sir the Police search warrant for 6/34-36a Darlinghurst Road, Kings Cross will expose the heart of the drug operation.

Joint media release: Polaris waterfront taskforce operation; 18 arrested, drugs, cash and weapons seized

*** This is a joint media release between the Australian Federal Police (AFP), the New South Wales Police Force (NSWPF), Australian Customs and Border Protection Service (ACBPS) and the Australian Crime Commission (ACC). ***
A 12 month long Polaris waterfront taskforce operation has resulted in 18 men being arrested and charged with more than 80 offences for their involvement in an organised crime syndicate.
The operation began in May 2014 to investigate the alleged criminal activities of an individual who worked on the Port Botany waterfront. The investigation then expanded to target a number of associated persons who it will be alleged were involved in drug trafficking, weapon possession and supply and drug cultivation.
A total of 20 search warrants have been executed at locations across Sydney and the NSW south coast which have resulted in the arrests of 18 persons who will face a total of 81 charges.
The operation concluded last week after three search warrants were executed at the homes of three suspects where evidence was retrieved in relation to drug trafficking and importation.
Whilst the investigation initially targeted an individual waterfront worker, other persons were identified as being involved in various criminal activities on their own or in concert with others.
Polaris Taskforce commander Detective Superintendent Nick Bingham said this operation’s outcomes highlighted the success of the Polaris waterfront taskforce and demonstrated the cooperation between agencies to target and disrupt organised crime syndicates within Australia and overseas.
“Australian state and federal law enforcement agencies are working together to disrupt organised crime syndicates that are operating within Australia and overseas. Operation Apteria highlights the excellent work done by our teams as part of this joint taskforce to combat organised crime,” said Detective Superintendent Bingham.
“From one small piece of information this investigation expanded to see dozens of charges laid, weapons seized and drugs and cash confiscated. We urge the community, especially those working at waterfront facilities to continue to provide information to us or to Crimestoppers,” said Detective Superintendent Bingham.
