Thursday, 17 December 2015 03:24:34 PM
Police have arrested a tenth person allegedly involved in a syndicate supplying “ice” in Sydney.
Detectives from the Redfern Region Enforcement Squad formed Strike Force Leonard in August 2015 to investigate the activities of two men and their associates.
This culminated yesterday (Wednesday 16 December 2015) in a Sydney-wide operation involving strike force detectives and officers from a number of specialist units.
During yesterday’s operation, police arrested five men and four women.
They have all been charged with supplying the prohibited drug methylamphetamine (“ice”); most have also been charged with participating in a criminal group.
Yesterday police also executed 12 search warrants at residential premises in Phillip Bay, Strathfield, Guildford, Redfern, Surry Hills, Elizabeth Bay, Artarmon, Toongabbie, Bardwell Valley and the Sydney CBD.
As a result of further investigations, police attached to Strike Force Leonard attended a home in Maroubra early this morning (Thursday 17 December 2015).
At this residence, police arrested a 54-year-old man and took him to Maroubra Police Station, where he was charged with supply prohibited drug (two counts) and possess prohibited drug (two counts).
Specialist police from the Drug Squad’s Chemical Operation Team remain at the premises.
A search warrant will be executed later this afternoon.
The investigation continues.
