POLICE hit the streets of Perth last Thursday morning with a counter-narcotics operation.

Several officers, a police dog and mounted police worked in and around Perth train station, and in the CBD malls, from 10am until 2pm.

Sergeant Wayne Godwin told the Guardian Express at noon that police dog Tana had already snared two large bags of cannabis, and that officers had gathered information about suppliers in the area.

“It has been a raging success,” he said.

“The drug dog goes up and down the walkway. She can detect cannabis, meth, heroin; all the major drugs. We can then chat to the person. I am pleased with the results so far.

“In addition to finding drugs we have had good intel on where people have been buying drugs around the CBD – which we will follow up.”
