Penrith RES investigators have arrested four people following an investigation into an alleged ‘Dial-a-Dealer’ syndicate supplying cocaine across Sydney’s north-west.
In August 2019, Penrith Region Enforcement Squad (RES) established Strike Force Gundain to investigate and target the supply of cocaine through the North West Metropolitan Region and surrounding suburbs.
Following extensive inquiries, strike force investigators executed three search warrants at units in Granville, Ryde and Carlingford from 6am today (Thursday 12 March 2020).
So far during the searches, officers have seized more than $75,000 cash, more than 1kg of cocaine, more than 2kg of a substance believed to be methylamphetamine, 117g of heroin, steroids and a ballistics vest.
A 28-year-old man was arrested at Granville and taken to Granville Police Station.
Two men – aged 27 and 32 – were arrested at Ryde and taken to Ryde Police Station.
A 26-year-old man was arrested at Carlingford and taken to Castle Hill Police Station.
Investigations under Strike Force Gundain are continuing and charges are expected to be laid.
Anyone with information about the supply of prohibited drugs is urged to contact Crime Stoppers: 1800 333 000 or https://nsw.crimestoppers.com.au. Information is treated in strict confidence.
