Further charges laid following drug investigation – Braidwood

Further arrests and charges have been laid following a six-month investigation into large-scale drug supply on the South Coast and Southern Tablelands.

Strike Force Carex was established in December 2018 to investigate a suspected organised methylamphetamine (‘ice’) syndicate operating in Nowra, Moruya and surrounding areas.

About 1pm yesterday (Thursday 27 June 2019), investigators from the Region Enforcement Squad intercepted a vehicle travelling through Bungendore and seized 34 grams of methylamphetamine, five MDMA tablets, 28 grams of cannabis and cash.

Police will allege the occupants of the vehicle – a 35-year-old man and a 30-year-old woman – were intending to supply the prohibited drugs.

The pair were arrested and taken to Goulburn Police Station.

Following further inquiries, strike force investigators, with the assistance of officers from Monaro Police District, executed a search warrant at a home at Braidwood, about 5pm.

Officers seized several items believed to be either stolen or the proceeds of crime, including power tools, vehicle rims, golf clubs and electronic devices.

The 35-year-old Braidwood man was charged with 16 offences including supply prohibited drug (ongoing basis), possess prohibited drug, supply prohibited drug (commercial quantity), deal in the proceeds of crime, breach of bail, and traffic offences.

A 30-year-old Braidwood woman was charged with seven offences including possess prohibited drug, supply prohibited drug and deal in the proceeds of crime.

Both were refused bail to appear before Goulburn Local Court today (Friday 28 June 2019).

Yesterday’s arrests follow the arrest and charge of two men following search warrants at Nowra and Moruya on Tuesday (25 June 2019). They remain before the courts.

Investigations under Strike Force Carex are continuing and further arrests are expected.
