Eight search warrants executed, 14 arrested over ‘ice’ distribution – Central Coast

Police have executed eight search warrants and arrested 14 people following an investigation into an illicit drug distribution syndicate on the state’s Central Coast.

In February 2020 officers from the Tuggerah Lakes Proactive Crime Team established Strike Force Harle to investigate the distribution of illicit drugs, particularly methylamphetamine, across the Central Coast region.

Early today (Friday 31 July 2020), police executed eight warrants at Gorokan, Lake Haven, Terrigal and Wamberal.

Police will allege they seized drugs including methylamphetamine, GHB, cocaine, MDMA and cannabis with an estimated street value of nearly $250,000.

Police also located in excess of $210, 000 cash.

Fifteen people – eight men and seven women – were arrested and taken to Wyong and Gosford Police Stations and are currently assisting with inquiries.

Investigations are ongoing.
