Police seize drugs, arrest man, South Australia

Police from the Serious and Organised Crime Branch (SOCB) have seized a firearm and drugs – believed to be methamphetamine – during property searches today.

One man, 28, has been arrested and has been charged with trafficking in a commercial with the seizure of about 250g of a substance at a property on Greentree Boulevard at Paralowie this morning.

At a second address in Athol Park police have located a firearm and about 500g of an illicit drug. Inquiries are continuing in relation to those seizures.

Detective Chief Inspector Michael Fisher, from SOCB’s Crime Gangs Task Force, said the property searches are related to Outlaw Motorcycle Gang activities but are not related to a recent spate of incidents in Adelaide.

“Police have been proactively investigating a series of incidents and all other illegal OMCG activity in South Australia,” he said.

“We have been clear that violent crime and illegal activity by these organized crime groups will not be tolerated and police will continue to take firm action.

“Anyone with information about illegal activity by OMCGs are urged to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 – and I remind callers they can remain anonymous.”
