Strike Force Raptor have arrested a member of an organised criminal syndicate for an alleged breach of a Serious Crime Prevention Order.
On Friday 18 December 2020 the Supreme Court issued a 33-year-old man with a Serious Crime Prevention Order following an application by the State Crime Command’s Criminal Groups Squad.
A Serious Crime Prevention Order (SCPO) may contain such prohibitions, restrictions, requirements and other provisions as the court considers appropriate for the purpose of protecting the public by preventing, restricting or disrupting involvement by a person in serious crime related activities.
Following inquiries, Strike Force Raptor attended a home in Auburn and arrested the 33-year-old man about 11.05am yesterday (Wednesday 24 February 2021).
He was taken to Auburn Police Station where he was charged with two counts of contravene Serious Crime Prevention Order.
Police will allege in court that the man was in contravention of his SCPO as he had failed to provide his correct vehicle information and was in possession of multiple mobile devices.
He was refused bail to appear at Burwood Local Court today (Thursday 25 February 2021)
