A 34-year-old Civic man will face the ACT Magistrates Court today in relation to drug trafficking after police yesterday seized large quantities of drugs and almost $90,000 in cash from a Civic property.
The drugs seized included more than 600 grams of methylamphetamine or ‘ice’, around 1000 pills of MDMA, 200 vials of anabolic steroids and trafficable quantities of suspected heroin and cocaine.
Police assess the drugs would have a combined street value of almost $850,000.
Detective Superintendent Scott Moller said that police will continue to target criminal syndicates operating in the ACT.
“These drugs cause untold harm in our community and the Criminal Investigations Team work tirelessly to reduce this harm and prevent these drugs reaching our streets,” he said.
Members of Criminal Investigations, with the assistance of the AFP National Crime Operations Team and the AFP Canine Team yesterday executed a search warrant at the Civic property as part of Operation Tribulation.
As well as the drugs and cash, police also located and seized drug paraphernalia including scales and clip seal bags associated with the trafficking of illicit drugs.
Police urge anyone with information about the manufacturing or dealing of illicit drugs to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or via the Crime Stoppers ACT website.
