Police have arrested three people and seized drugs, believed to be heroin and cocaine, and cash following extensive investigations into an alleged drug syndicate operating out of the Kings Cross area.
Officers will allege the group supplied prohibited drugs at least 328 times between 7 October and 14 November, mainly in the Woolloomooloo area.
The drugs allegedly supplied include heroin and cocaine, and were mostly supplied to those from a low socio-economic background.
Yesterday (Thursday 19 November 2015), police from the Kings Cross Drug Unit, with the assistance of the Redfern Drug Unit executed search warrants at Waterloo, Bondi and Woolloomooloo. At the Bondi address, cash was allegedly located in a bedroom being used by a teenager.
A 42-year-old man and two women, aged 38 and 54, were arrested after a hire car was stopped in Missenden Road at Newtown.
All three were charged with ongoing supply of a prohibited drug and participation in a criminal group.
A 42-year-old Bondi man was also charged with dealing with the proceeds of crime.
They were refused bail and will all appear in Central Local Court today (Friday 20 November 2015).
Inquiries are still continuing into the alleged drug supply in the Woolloomooloo area.
Police are urging anyone with information in relation to this incident to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or use the Crime Stoppers online reporting page: https://nsw.crimestoppers.com.
