Go To Court Lawyers have been retained to act on behalf of one of a number of people arrested following multiple drug raids across the NSW Central Coast and Sydney on Wednesday.
The raids are alleged to have resulted in a drugs haul valued at more than $1.5 million, including 30,000 ecstasy pills, cocaine, cannabis, ice and steroids, 1.5 tonnes of chemicals to be used to manufacture drugs (precursors), and thousands of dollars in cash. The raids followed searches conducted on Tuesday in Morisset where police allegedly found a large and sophisticated hydroponic operation for cannabis. A 39 year old was arrested and charged with possessing a prohibited drug, cultivating a prohibited plant, and altering or adding to the electricity installation for metering.
The first search on Wednesday resulted in the arrest of a 26 year old who police allege held a senior position in the drug supply operations on the Woy Woy Peninsula. He has been charged with 7 offences, such as supply of a large commercial quantity of prohibited drugs, supply of an indictable quantity of prohibited drugs, and knowingly participating in a criminal group.
Two 20 year olds and one 21 year old all from Umina Beach were also arrested. One of the 20 year olds was charged with 8 offences and the other with 19 offences including supplying a large commercial quantity of a prohibited drug and knowingly participating in a criminal group. The 21 year old faces 18 similar offences.

A 34 year old woman from Woy Woy was charged with 5 offences relating to supply of indictable quantities of prohibited drugs.
In a raid at Stanhope Gardens, police are alleging to have found a number of jackets bearing the insignia of the Mongols bikie organisation and are thus drawing links between at least one of those arrested and the criminal activity for which the organisation is known.
