Officers arrested a woman in Thornlie on June 16, after allegedly finding her with $40,000 cash, methylamphetamine, a slingshot and a homemade stun gun.

They also found items in a Mt Richon house ” including methylamphetamine ” that they will allege belonged to the woman.

They laid charges in relation to the Thornlie find and the Mt Richon search.

Detective senior constable Karl McLeod said police seized 47 ‘deal bags’ of cannabis (street value $1175), $1745 cash, about 0.2g of heroin and about 1g of cannabis resin from an Armadale house on July 2, while a search of a house in Gosnells yielded 15 cannabis plants and nearly 1.5kg of cannabis on June 26.

He said these raids were a snapshot of the scale of the operation.

Constable McLeod said staff had linked volume crime, drug possession and drug sales with anti-social behaviour and much of their success was due to information from the public.

‘I’ve lost count of how many doors we’ve done,’ he said.

‘We’re going from street level to lower middle level dealers.

‘They’re all interlinked.’
