A man has been charged over the alleged supply of prohibited drugs from a home in Sydney’s inner city.

About 11.15pm on Friday (24 April 2020), police from Sydney City Police Area Command stopped a Toyota Corolla on George Street.

Officers spoke to the occupants before conducting a search of the vehicle, where they located and seized four containers of gamma-butyrolactone (GHB).

The liquid, weighing more than 1.5kg, was located in the backpack of the passenger.

The passenger, a 37-year-old man, was arrested and taken to Day Street Police Station where he was later charged with supply prohibited drug (commercial quantity). He was refused bail to appear at Central Local Court on Tuesday (28 April 2020).

The driver, a ride-share operator, was released pending further inquiries.

Following subsequent inquiries, police executed a search warrant at a home on Stirling Street at Glebe about 1.30pm yesterday (Saturday 25 April 2020).
