Eight ar­rested af­ter three-day drug op

Western Suburbs Weekly - - News -

A BAL­DIVIS man (48) had metham­phetamine al­legedly to sell in Wem­b­ley and a Brook­dale man (23) was al­legedly car­ry­ing the drug in Su­bi­aco when they were ar­rested separately on April 22.

The men were among eight ar­rested in the three-day op­er­a­tion dur­ing the An­zac Day long week­end.

“We di­rected our as­sets and re­sources to known lo­ca­tions of crime and got re­sults,” Se­nior Sergeant Julie Fo­ley said.

Sgt Fo­ley’s Wem­b­ley-based of­fi­cers tar­geted sub­urbs in­clud­ing Su­bi­aco, Ned­lands, Wem­b­ley and West Leed­erville at night.

It will be al­leged the bailed Bal­divis man had the drug to sell or sup­ply when he ap­pears in court at a later date, while the Brook­dale man will be sum­monsed to ap­pear in court on a date yet to be de­ter­mined.

Po­lice con­ducted about 120 traf­fic stops dur­ing the op­er­a­tion. Among other things, they stopped a ve­hi­cle which al­legedly had drug para­pher­na­lia, stolen credit cards and purses in it when it was searched in Monash Av­enue, Ned­lands on April 21. Fur­ther in­quiries may lead to a charge.
