Large police operation targets local drug suppliers – Wagga Wagga

A major police operation, targeting local drug suppliers, is currently underway in Wagga Wagga and surrounds.

In February (2015), police from the Wagga Wagga Local Area Command formed Strike Force Calyx to investigate more than 40 people believed to be involved in the supply of methylamphetamine (‘Ice’), MDMA, cannabis and other illicit substances. Officers were concerned about a wave of property crime in Wagga Wagga, Ashmont, Toland, Coolamin and Junee, and contended that the break-ins and thefts were being spurred by illicit drug use.

Over the course of this morning (Tuesday 16 June 2015), local police have executed search warrants at numerous properties in Wagga Wagga, Juneee and Coolamin.

So far, 11 people have been arrested.

More arrests are expected over the course of the afternoon.
