Big blow bust in Deakin

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.

Gee, Civic is going to be a little quieter this weekend in that case (just a little)

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

You probably need a better dealer.

Yeah, that cheeky f*** down at the pharmacy always makes me wait.

Oh dear it would appear that the person in question is David O’Brien.I remember a Dave O’Brien back from ‘Trix’ days ie. ’80’s and if indeed it is the same individual i can swear your honour that Dave never ever took or sold drugs…’honest’.

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.

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

Please read comments thoroughly before replying.

“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 in any other way than implying that dealers are scum-bags. Actually, not even implying, just … stating.

I’m confused. What did you mean?

Well written and to the point, cannot argue with that.

Hmm, so there was a domestic violence bust, along with information received about drugs.

Sounds like he should’ve stopped beating his wife before she ratted him out.

Domestic partner for the past year not wife….as per Canberra times

There’s a storm coming, Mr. Wayne. You and your friends better batten down the hatches, because when it hits, you’re all gonna wonder how you ever thought you could live so large and leave so little for the rest of us. Quote does this post justice.
