Five people have been arrested in raids across Melbourne by police investigating a drug trafficking syndicate linked to the Comanchero bikie gang.
Officers from Victoria Police, the Australian Border Force and the Australian Federal Police executed search warrants at properties in Caroline Springs, Aberfeldie, Greenvale, Hillside and Kew and seized cash, drugs and stolen vehicles.
Three men were arrested this morning, including a 20-year-old Aberfeldie man, a 21-year-old Greenvale man, and a 30-year-old Kew man.
Last night, a 27-year-old Caroline Springs man, who is alleged to be an officer bearer of the Comanchero outlaw motorcycle gang, and a 25-year-old Caroline Springs woman were also arrested.
Police said the arrests were part of a 10-month investigation into the importation of border controlled substances and commercial level trafficking in Victoria.
The drug syndicate has been linked to two non-fatal shootings and a vehicle arson in Reservoir in early June 2019.
Police and the ABF have seized close to two-tonnes of 1,4 Butanediol, 100kgs of P2P – chemicals used to make methamphetamines – and over 10kg of ketamine.
“Today is about ensuring that those within these organised crime groups are held accountable for their criminal actions and show that police will actively work to disrupt their activities,” said Detective Senior Sergeant Paul Lloyd, from the Echo Taskforce.
“Victoria Police has been working closely with our federal partners since December 2018 to identify those responsible for the trafficking of these substances.
“The links to the shootings and arson also highlight how often we see drugs and firearms intrinsically linked within these organised crime groups.”
Police are appealing for anyone who has further information about these incidents to come forward.
