A search of a property at Angle Park has resulted in the seizure of 15kg of heroin – believed to be the largest ever single seizure of the illicit drug by SA Police.
The seizure occurred at a Stuart Street property on Tuesday, when it was searched by detectives from the Serious and Organised Crime Branch (SOCB) as part of an ongoing investigation.
One kilo of cocaine was also seized, with police finding both packaged and consistent with being part of a large commercial enterprise.
A second property in June Street, Mansfield Park, was also searched, reslting in the seizure of cash and equipment used in the preparation for sale of heroin.
No arrests have been made, however the police investigation is continuing.
“Police will continue to tackle organised crime groups, who are involved in the importation, manufacturing and supplying of illicit drugs,” Detective Chief Inspector Christina Buckley, the officer in charge of SOCB investigations, said.
“We are committed to the reduction of the harm caused by the use of illicit drugs in our community through law enforcement.”
Anyone with information about this matter, or the manufacture or distribution of illicit drugs, is urged to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or report online at www.crimestopperssa.com.au – you can remain anonymous.
