Docklands heroin bust

03 Sep 2014

Police arrested a parolee in Docklands last month after $70,000 worth of heroin was found in his possession during a roadblock operation.

“Operation Roller” on August 5 saw 2800 cars driving city-bound on Footscray Rd, checked by Automated Number Plate Recognition (ANPR).

The male was arrested with 200 grams of heroin in his possession, which carries a street value of $70,000.

He was charged with trafficking heroin and has been returned to jail.

The operation also saw 167 sheriffs’ warrants executed, while 10 drivers received tickets for driving an unregistered car, three drivers for driving without a licence and five for driving on a suspended licence.

The previous month, police carried out a two-week traffic operation across Footscray Rd, Dynon Rd and Wurundjeri Way.

Over two weeks in July, “Operation Nimrod” saw 1800 vehicles checked, 200 penalty notices issued, 23 drivers sent to court over driving offences and three arrest warrants executed.
