A man will appear in court today, after being charged in relation to the discovery of $6 million worth of ‘ice’ in a property in St Clair.
In March 2013, the State Crime Command’s Drug Squad and Mount Druitt police formed Strike Force Alcoomie to investigate a drug syndicate believed to be involved in the supply of methylamphetamine and ecstasy in NSW and parts of Queensland.
Last week, on August 7, investigators executed a search warrant at a property – believed to be a possible drug manufacturing site – on Ashford Grove, St Clair.
Inside the property, police located and seized six kilograms of methylamphetamine, or ‘Ice’ as it is commonly referred to. Detectives will allege the drugs seized had a street value of approximately $6 million.
Following the search warrant, police arrested a 31-year-old woman and a 31-year-old man, both from St Clair.
The pair were charged for their alleged involvement in commercial drug supply and refused bail. The woman is due to appear in Penrith Local Court Friday, August 16, while the man is next due in Penrith Local Court on October 4.

He was refused bail and is scheduled to appear in Parramatta Local Court Friday, August 16.
