Two arrested; search warrant underway at Wollongong

Two men have been arrested following a strike force investigation into the supply of illicit drugs in the Wollongong area.

Detectives from Wollongong Police District established Strike Force Fame in May 2020, to investigate the supply of ‘ice’ from a business in Wollongong CBD.

Following extensive inquiries, shortly after 10am, investigators attended a bicycle repair store on Church Street, Wollongong, and arrested a 48-year-old man.

A short time later, a second man – aged 55 – was arrested on Carr Street, Towradgi.

Both men were taken to Wollongong Police Station, where they are currently assisting police with inquiries.

A search warrant is currently underway at the business, with the assistance of the Dog Unit and Wollongong PD Proactive Crime Team.

Inquiries are continuing and charges are expected to be laid.
