Big blow bust in Deakin

By johnboy 22 August 2012 36

cocaine

Following the discovery of a quantity of drugs at a Deakin residence yesterday (Tuesday, August 21), ACT Policing’s Drug Investigations Team will oppose bail on a 51-year-old man when he appears in the ACT Magistrates Court tomorrow (Thursday, August 23).

Belconnen General Duties patrol members executed a Crimes Act warrant on a Deakin residence yesterday in relation to a domestic violence matter, for which the alleged offender has already faced court.

Acting on information received, a Drugs of Dependence warrant was also sworn for the residence.

During the warrant, police officers also canvassed the local area and widened the search.

Located was more than a kilogram of white powder suspected to be cocaine. Police also located a significant sum of cash at the same concealed location.

Acting Crime Manager, Detective Sergeant Shane Scott said that this seizure, which had a potential street value of around $350,000, was made possible by a combination of methodical investigation, and a willingness by the public to assist.

“With the help of the public, we searched for and located evidence we strongly suspected was somewhere nearby. This is a good example of how a partnership between the community and its police generates useful intelligence, on which police can then act,” Sergeant Scott said.

Think of all those policing man hours better directed, and all the $$ not given to the scum-bag dealers.

Your broad generalisation that all drug dealers are scum bags, is naive and misguided, they provide a service to the public for profit, knowing full well the risks to their own freedom. Just like the bootleggers of yesteryear they fill a market demand which the government and general public is to stupid to do anything about.

The real scumbags are big pharmaceutical and the government not your friendly neighbourhood dealer.

Actually people who buy and sell cocaine are all unethical scumbags.

The cocaine trade creates an abominable situation in the places where the coca leaf is harvested. Child slave labour in Chinese Nike factories isn’t even a fraction as despicable as what the coca-growers get up to.

If you buy cocaine, you truly are a selfish and immoral scumbag.

Strange day when i back up henrybg,

but its true, there is blood all over cocaine. The atrocitys happening in south america are way worse than anything the taliban ever have done.

The US is behind the global sale of both cocaine and heroin. How many scores of puppet governments have the US installed to allow their drug trade? It funds their black budget ops, because RICO laws don’t apply to the CIA. The Taliban hate opium, heroin is not compatible with Islam. Opium production has increased by an order of magnitude since we invaded, opium fields are even guarded by US troops.

Blaming and arresting dealers and users in Canberra is wholly ineffective, if you actually want to reduce drug sales, pull our troops out of Afghanistan and start prosecuting US government agencies.

Of course all that is a bit beyond the purview of your average Canberra cop, so they continue persecuting local users and dealers. Presumably to make it look like they are doing something, even though the problem is way above their pay grade.

He had the evidence but some guys in a black helicopter stole it one night.

Yeah, actually, this doesn’t stand up to scrutiny: Initially, the Taliban banned it: opium production plummeted, hearts and minds of the poppy farmers were lost, a massive source of funding dried up. The Taliban learnt from that.
They are now enthusiastic participants in the opium trade.

So if you legalise it, you can deal a massive blow to terrorism, probably more effective than any military operation could possibly be.

Yep… pretty much all arguments about how end-consumers are responsible for the evils o the global drug trade completely overlook what causes the evils in the first place – prohibition.

If you want to stamp out the evils of the drug trade, make it legal and encourage legitimate businesses operating under strong regulations to control production and distribution.

You don’t hear of too many people getting killed or local peasants being used as slaves to help support Tasmania’s legal poppy and opiate producers.

This. Good points that I agree with.

Then the Afghan guvment encouraged by NATO and others embarked on a massive eradication program,the consequences of which are detailed in the following link.

i really think the main drug of concern for australia is probably meth.. Coke is just nose candy for trendy lawyers and professionals.

The way I hear it told, meth wasn’t even much of an issue until the police cracked down on ecstasy. Party people want their happy pills, if they can’t get mdma they’ll settle for amphetamines.

If you’re going to blame consumers for the means of production, then you’re also a selfish and immoral scumbag if you buy clothes, coffee, sneakers, footballs, etc.

Very left-wing of you HenryBG.

I didn’t say all drug dealers are scum-bags.

“Think of all those policing man hours better directed, and all the $$ not given to the scum-bag dealers”

It’s hard to interpret this[1] in any other way than implying that dealers are scum-bags. Actually, not even implying, just … stating.

I’m confused. What did you mean?[2]

[1]. Comprehension.

[2]. Wife-basher/pervayor of (certifiably) bad drugs

Ah, so you know the dude. Why not just say so?
