Police Conduct Machine Gun Raid At Dickson

realityskin 26 March 2008 25

Turkish restaurant next to Trinity at Dickson last night got raided by police with machine guns and bullet proof vests. Busted out of a plain marked van and stormed the back entrance. *Apparently* a massive cocaine bust. Anyone know anything ?

Cops don’t like to pay for their weed.

About 3 years ago I got busted in a carpark smoking bongs with my friends, 2 police cars rocked up and interrogated etc..
After about 5 minutes, no names were recorded, no fines/warnings issued, police just took our containers and smoking devices and took off. Even let us all drive home under the influence.

Something doesn’t seem right there..

Anyone else had similar situations?

I took it as a sign of corrupt police involvement in the organised over-the-counter drug sales, but who knows?

“I once reported hard drug sales out of a takeaway at Dickson, to Canberra police and they weren’t interested.”

Perhaps they were enjoying the burgers with the lot?

SOT/SRS – same thing, different name. But yes, now SRS in ACT, ORT overseas.

This is more than likely the Police who conducted the raid.

Sepi, as addictive as KFC’s popcorn chicken is … it’s not classified as a “drug” under the Prohibited Substances Act 🙂

I once reported hard drug sales out of a takeaway at Dickson, to Canberra police and they weren’t interested. Maybe Canberra police have turned a corner.

I dunno about that. Imagine if the cops were French and were armed with garlic bread?

Pure carnage…..

Couldn’t agree more Nath, imagine copping an eyeful of tabouli – ouch! With all that garlic etc it’s gotta sting.

After seeing what the Turks did to the ANZACs at Gallipoli in 1915, I’d be going in fully armed too. 😉

Tabouli can be pretty dangerous if left out of the fridge … I’d be going in with a Kevlar vest too …

maybe they didn’t like the food.

and i thought that was just icing sugar on the turkish delight…

I worked there behind the bar for a short stint about a year and a bit ago.

Never even had the slightest idea anything dodgy was going on.

It does explain why he never wanted the store room tidied up.

There were some rumour about videos made in fun of cutting up coke on the front bench. Apparently an employee who quit last week was involved in this.

The SOT are called in when “lethal force is authorised” – which generally means anti-terror operations or they are expecting to meet armed resistance (say an armed robbery where an offender has discharged a weapon) – presumably they had intel that suggested that the baddies in the restaurant were armed with something a bit more dangerous than tabouli…

Would they really need machine guns to raid a restaurant? It’s hardly a heavily-armed headquarters for the Popular Liberation Front of Dickson (PLFD)
