Australia: NSW Police – Four arrested during raids targeting illicit drug supply – Hunter

Drug and Firearms Squad detectives have arrested four people following an investigation into the supply of prohibited drugs across the state’s Central Coast and Hunter.

In April (2022), detectives from the State Crime Command’s Drug and Firearms Squad, in partnership with the NSW Crime Commission (NSWCC), established Strike Force Great to investigate the supply of methylamphetamine throughout the state’s Central Coast and Hunter regions.

As part of ongoing inquiries, strike force detectives arrested a 38-year-old man and a 24-year-old woman following vehicle stops at Killarney Vale and Belmont shortly after 9am today (Wednesday 12 October 2022).

They were taken to Belmont and Wyong Police Stations.

A short time later, investigators executed search warrants in Belmont North, Nords Wharf and Wadalba, locating and seizing more than 2kg of methylamphetamine – with an estimated potential street value of $2 million – $220,000 cash, a gel-blaster firearm, electronic devices, and other items relevant to the investigation.

They were assisted by officers attached to Raptor Squad, Hunter Region Enforcement Squad (RES) and Northern Region Operation Support Group (OSG) throughout the operation.

A 43-year-old man was arrested during the search of a home at Belmont North and taken to Belmont Police Station.

Following further inquiries, a 42-year-old man was arrested at a workplace in Wyong about 10.30am and taken to Wyong Police Station.

All are expected to be charged.
