IRONSIDE: Woman charged with money laundering and drug trafficking

Australian Federal Police detectives working on Operation IRONSIDE EAST-GALVESTON have charged a 32-year-old Hurstville woman with money laundering and drug trafficking offences.

As part of the IRONSIDE resolution earlier this month, a 40-year-old Mount Keira man – believed to be the Comanchero OMCG Sergeant-at-Arms on the NSW South Coast – and his alleged associate, a 31-year-old Horsley man, were both arrested at their homes and charged with multiple serious offences.

The investigation into this criminal network has now revealed the alleged involvement of a 32-year-old Hurstville woman who allegedly received $50,000 in cash on behalf of the syndicate.

Detectives from the National Anti-Gangs Squad executed a search warrant at the woman’s home on Friday, 11 June 2021 where they seized:

  • Approximately 1.9 kilograms of a white powdery substance suspected to be methamphetamine
  • A cash counter and scales
  • Approximately $50,000 in cash
  • Mobile phones; and
  • Drug paraphernalia.

The woman was subsequently arrested and charged with:

  • Trafficking commercial quantities of a controlled drug, namely methamphetamine, contrary to section 302.2(1) of the Criminal Code (Cth); and
  • Dealing in proceeds of crime, money or property worth $50,000 or more, contrary to section 400.5(2) of the Criminal Code (Cth).

She is next due in Central Local Court on 4 August 2021.
