WA Police seize $10kg of meth following Dianella raid

Police officers have seized 10kg of the dangerous drug methylamphetamine and more than $300,000 in cash following searches at suburban Perth homes.

Organised crime squad detectives charged two men aged 44 and another aged 38 in connection with cash and drugs.

The meth could have fetched nearly $10 million on Perth streets.

Detectives executed a search warrant at a Dianella residence last week where they allegedly found 10.2kg of meth.

After further investigations a 38-year-old man from Bedford and two 44-year-old men from Dianella and North Perth were arrested between Saturday and Monday.

Police also froze cash and other assets worth about $1 million in total. This includes $300,000 cash seized from a house in Morley.

All three men have been charged with several offences including possessing a trafficable quantity of methylamphetamine with intent to sell.

The 38-year-old man was refused bail and will face Perth Magistrate’s Court on October 27.

The two 44-year-old men were refused bail and were due to appear in the Perth Magistrate’s Court today.

The arrests follow this morning’s revelations of WA Police’s biggest-ever cash seizure — a $3.9 million haul found during a major operation which also uncovered 13kg of methylamphetamine.

The police operation saw detectives stop a truck on Great Eastern Highway near Sawyers Valley, east of Perth, on September 21.

Detective Superintendent Tony Longhorn said the recent seizures would disrupt the activities of those responsible for importing and distributing illicit drugs into Western Australia.

“By focussing our efforts on the right people, and targeting those responsible for bringing large quantities of illicit drugs into our state, we can prevent the drugs from reaching the streets where it causes great harm to our community,” he said.
