ACT Policing has arrested two men after executing a number of search warrants after a three month investigation regarding the supplying of drugs.

Around 2pm yesterday (July 5), police stopped a Mitsubishi Triton utility, driven by a 33-year-old Oxley man and a silver Honda Accord, driven by a 44-year-old Macgregor man on Bindubi Street, Aranda. Both vehicles had been identified as being part of the investigation.

During a search of the vehicles, police seized two mobile telephones, cash and drug paraphernalia.

ACT Policing Criminal Investigations detectives then executed simultaneous drug warrants on houses in Oxley and Macgregor.

During the search of the Oxley house, police seized a sum of cash, drug paraphernalia and drugs, suspected to be methylamphetamine.

At the Macgregor house, police seized cash and drugs, suspected to be heroin and methylamphetamine along with a number of mobile telephones and electronic devices.

At the completion of the warrants, both men were arrested and taken to the ACT Watch House where they were charged with trafficking in a controlled drug other than cannabis. They will face the ACT Magistrates Court later this morning.

I saw this, they had an unmarked car mounted on curb oposite jamison shops. this ute was there with two guys sitting in the gutter one had a hoody. They had a brown paper bag sitting out with a few other items piled up next to them. Brown bag looked like a bottle though. they also had another marked car behind them.

There is always seems to be an unmarked car around the Jamo car park usually between 8-9pm or at least I see one every time i go at those times. The guy driving is an dark overalls wearer and he has a durry break with other POPO’s at the oval end of the car park, not that i take note of such seeming everyday things. Although, I didnt think that it was a good look for the Police.

I wonder if this bust is connected to all of the helicopter action happening over those suburbs the past few months..
