POLICE claim they hit another meth house in North Pinjarra yesterday.

Police from Pinjarra, Dwellingup and the canine section searched a house and allegedly found drugs and weapons.

The drug bust follows an operation by police targeting a drug syndicate.

Mandurah Detectives assisted by the Drug and Firearms Squad executed a number of search warrants in the Mandurah suburbs throughout August and September.

These warrants resulted in five arrests with 26 charges relating to drug, firearm and weapons offences.

There were five properties searched and involved the seizure of about 63 grams of methylamphetamine, a small quantity of LSD tabs, a stun gun, pepper spray and assorted weapons and ammunition.

Acting Superintendent Dean Snashall said the search warrants show a commitment by police to disrupting the sale and supply of illicit drugs in the Mandurah Policing District which ultimately impacts the community.

“Similar operations remain ongoing with a focus on drugs, specifically meth, which is WA Police Force priority.

“We value the ongoing support of the Mandurah community in providing information about drug distribution and encourage that information to continue coming through.”
