Police arrest nine people following drug operation in Woolloomooloo

Police have arrested nine people following an operation in Woolloomooloo early this morning targeting those allegedly involved in the distribution of cocaine and heroin within the Kings Cross area, NSW Police say.


About 9am today, police from the Kings Cross Drug Unit, together with officers from Operation Odin, NSW Police Dog Squad, Operation Support Group and Polair, executed six search warrants in residential premises across Woolloomooloo.


Officers allegedly located an amount of heroin and cannabis inside a number of premises, and arrested five women and four men.


They were taken to Kings Cross Police Station where charges are expected to be laid.


This operation commenced as a result of inquires into three Molotov cocktails being thrown in the vicinity of Cathedral Street and Bourke Street, Woolloomooloo earlier this year.


No arrests have been made in connection to that inquiry but investigations into that matter continue.
