New South Wales Police have charged three men after seizing nearly $4.7 million in cash, 5kg of drugs, cryptocurrency teller machines and other items. The arrests were made by officers from Strike Force Mactier, a joint-agency investigation involving police from NSW State Crime Command’s Organised Crime Squad along with officers from the Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission (ACIC) and the US Department of Homeland Security.

Assisted by detectives from Operation PHOBETOR – established by NSW Police, Australian Federal Police and ACIC in early 2021, Strike Force Mactier arrested the men aged between 34 and 45 years on 8 April 2022.

Two of the men were arrested near a unit block on Gardeners Road, Mascot where a search of the 34-year-old found $120,000 in cash. A further $51,500 in cash and 13 envelopes containing what is believed to be cocaine and other illicit drugs was found on the 39-year-old. Further inquiries saw execution of three search warrants at a further two units on Gardeners Road and a storage unit in Kingsgrove, with a 45-year-old man arrested at one of the units.

The 34-year-old male was granted bail to appear at the Downing Centre Local Court on Monday 9 May 2022. A 39-year-old male was charged with 12 offences including supply of a prohibited drug and four counts of deal with proceeds of crime offences. He was refused bail and appeared at Central Local Court on Saturday 9 April 2022. He was again refused bail and will appear at the same court on Thursday 2 June 2022.

The 45-year-old male was charged with deal in the proceeds of crime, supplying prohibited drugs, and granted conditional bail to appear at Downing Centre Local Court on Friday 6 May 2022.

The arrests have been attributed to the strong multi-agency operation and its ability to disrupt major crime. State Crime Command’s Organised Crime Squad Commander, Detective Superintendent Robert Critchlow has said the ability of drawing on the capabilities of its partners has enabled police to better evolve to the changing criminal landscape and respond quickly and efficiently across the state.
