Charges laid following investigation into illicit drug supply– Bega

A man will face court today charged over his alleged involvement in the supply of methylamphetamine on the state’s far south coast.

In April, detectives from South Coast Police District established Strike Force Sharwen to investigate the supply of prohibited drugs in the Bega Valley Shire.

Following inquiries, strike force detectives executed a search warrant at a rural property between Bega and Eden on Tuesday 2 July 2019.

Officers seized several items, including ice and cannabis.

Two men – aged 20 and 27 – were served Field Court Attendance Notices for their alleged involvement in the supply of prohibited drugs and dealing with proceeds of crime.

The men are due to appear at Eden Local Court on 7 August 2019.

Following further inquiries, a 38-year-old man was arrested on Nelba Nelba Road, Bega, about 12.50pm yesterday (Wednesday 10 July 2019).

He was taken to Bega Police Station and charged with supply prohibited drug on an ongoing basis and two further counts of supply prohibited drugs.

Police will allege in court that the man was involved in the supply of methylamphetamine throughout the Bega Valley Shire area.

He was bail refused and will face Narooma Local Court today (Thursday 11 July 2019).
