Drug dogs at Southern Cross station

04 Jun 2015

A police operation at Southern Cross Station last month uncovered seven people carrying illegal drugs.

Operation Packthread took place on May 2 and saw police use drug dogs to detect commuters carrying illegal substances.

The operation coincided with the Groovin’ the Moo music festival in Bendigo, which saw hundreds of commuters travel from Melbourne via public transport.

Sen-Sgt Andrew Martin said the operation allowed police to track down and confiscate illicit substances before they made it into the venue.

During the operation the dogs made 38 detections, resulting in seven confirmed detections and seven individuals were subsequently charged with possessing a drug of dependence.

“Last year we ran the operation at Bendigo Railway Station and detected 27 people with illicit drugs including methylamphetamine, cocaine, cannabis, ecstasy and GHB.”

“It is concerning that despite the warnings, there are still people who choose not only to do the wrong thing but also do something that can cause so march harm,” Sen-Sgt Martin said.
