Finally putting an end to a four-month search, police arrested a 59-year-old man selling drugs in Blacktown on Thursday morning. Allegedly, the man had two kilograms of heroin and a large amount of cash in the back of his car.
Later a 50-year-old Penrith man, 41-year-old St Marys man and 48-year-old Kingswood man were taken into custody. Another was arrested at his home in Cronulla.
Detective Superintendent Nick Bingham, drug squad commander said: “We believe this operation will put a dent in the availability of heroin in western Sydney.”
Most of these men are likely to be charged with offences related to the commercial supply of heroin. The man arrested at his house in Cronulla will be charged for the supply of prohibited drug, relating to heroin and methylamphetamine, and fraud.
NSW Police says the search warrants were also carried out at properties in Kingswood, Penrith, Blacktown, Cronulla and Granville, with numerous items seized.
