Dellwood to disrupt drug flow

Two people have been charged with drug and property offences as part of Operation Dellwood, which Fremantle police conducted on January 9 to address concern over the amount of crime in the area.

On February 6 police searched a home in O’Reilly Close, which led to two people being charged.

A 40-year-old man was charged with seven counts of selling prohibited drugs, two counts of possessing a prohibited drug, two counts of possessing drug paraphernalia, one count of receiving and two counts of possessing stolen or unlawfully obtained property, including $4010 worth of cash that was seized.

A 47-year-old woman has been charged with four counts of selling a prohibited drug and one count of possessing stolen or unlawfully obtained property.

Police also arrested a 37-year-old Coolbellup man during the search on Thursday who will be charged with possessing a prohibited drug when he was allegedly found with ecstasy and methylamphetamine.

South Metropolitan District acting Superintendent Peter Morrissey said detectives also seized a number of other items including military paraphernalia and electrical items and that there would be further investigation into the property.

‘These significant arrests are a result of dedicated and intensive police work by local officers and will assist in disrupting the local distribution of illicit drugs in this area,’ he said.

‘This is an example of successful localised targeting using intelligence and sound policing.’
