His fiancée, 26-year-old Jemma Dann, was also arrested Thursday and charged with six counts of supplying prohibited drugs, six counts of participating in supplying prohibited drugs, participation in a criminal group and managing the proceeds of crime.
The Caringbah South couple were denied bail and were due to appear in Sutherland Local Court on Friday.
Four men, ages 23, 26, 27 and 29, were arrested in a raid on a property on Castenau Street in Caringbah South on Thursday. All four were charged with drug supply offenses and denied bail. They were due to appear in the same court on Friday.
“Researchers [allegedly] seized 5,000 MDMA pills and about 280 grams of cocaine, along with $185,000 in cash,” police said of the Castenau Street address.
Strike Force agents had allegedly previously seized 4,000 MDMA pills and 1.1 kilograms of cocaine.
“The total estimated potential street value of the MDMA and cocaine seized throughout the investigation is more than $750,000,” police said in a statement Friday.
“The police will argue in court that the group was involved in a large commercial-scale supply of prohibited drugs.”
