Local police have been praised after a four-month operation led to the seizure of more than 200 grams of ice — with a street value of more than $100,000 — on Wednesday.
More than 50 officers involved inStrike Force Algid arrested six people— two males from Ingleburn, a male and female from Spring Farm and a male and a female from Warwick Farm.
The operation was led by detectives from Camden local area command but involved more than 50 officers including detective from Campbelltown, Macquarie Fields, Liverpool and Green Valley as well as officers from the regional enforcement, public riot and police dog squads.
Camden crime manager Detective Inspector Jayne Doherty, described the arrests as a ‘‘very satisfying result’’.
‘‘It’s good to see it come to fruition,’’ she said.
‘‘Obviously we are interested in the dealers more than the people caught in possession.
‘‘Some people who were arrested were street dealers but the majority were medium-sized dealers.’’
Campbelltown crime manager Detective Inspector Gregory Inger praised all the officers involved.
‘‘People selling drugs don’t stick to geographical boundaries and like any operation, it takes a fair bit of co-operation,’’ he said.
‘‘Hopefully it has put a bit of a dent in the drug trade around Macarthur.’’
Detective Inspector Doherty said the use of ice had a devastating impact on the local community.
‘‘It’s quite surprising the number of domestic violence calls we get with people on ice,’’ she said.
‘‘Many are in their 20s or 30s … and it just consumes their life [to the point where] they lose their jobs and homes.
‘‘The information we are getting is that it is highly addictive.’’
