Drugs, gun seized


A SEARCH of a home in Mordialloc has allegedly turned up over $100,000 worth of drugs.

A 24-year-old Mordialloc woman was arrested on 13 June and charged with a number of drug related offences after the search. She was bailed to appear at Ringwood Magistrates’ Court on 14 November.

Search warrants were executed at two addresses on 13 July. It is alleged that a house on White Street, Mordialloc contained steroids, ecstasy, prescription medications, a large quantity of cash, a handgun, and a carpet python.

It is alleged that a storage unit in Lilydale contained an extensive array of glassware, laboratory equipment and chemicals.

Sergeant Ell McGibbony from Croydon divisional tasking unit said “the warrants have led us to the discovery of an elaborate organised criminal enterprise responsible for large scale underground steroid manufacturing and distribution across the country.”

“This is the second operation of its type for our office in as many weeks and it marks a significant win for both Victoria Police and the wider community,” Sergeant McGibbony said.
