Drugs, weapons seized A MAN was arrested and charged with trafficking a drug of dependence after police raided a Mordialloc home last month. In the early hours of 18 February, police raided the Mordialloc house. They allege that they seized around 30 grams of methylamphetamine with a value of more than $25000, about 5 grams of ketamine, anabolic steroids, a loaded handgun, firearm parts, ammunition, and $26,000 in cash. A 62-year-old man from Mordialloc was arrested and charged with trafficking a drug of dependence, possess handgun, possess ammunition, possess prohibited weapon, and possessing property being proceeds of a crime. Caulfield Divisional Response Unit undertook the raid. Acting Detective Sergeant Wes Yarnton said that the arrest “should serve as a stark reminder of the life changing repercussions associated with drug dealing.” “Every single day someone chooses to traffick drugs they are engaging in a dangerous game of roulette. Sooner or later, they will receive a knock on the door from police and at this point, the realisation quickly dawns that they have made a decision that has ruined their life,” he said. “Up to 15 years in a prison cell is a long way removed from the easy money they have been chasing, while police will have absolutely no hesitation seizing every dollar, piece of property, or vehicle that has been gained by profiting off the addiction of others. “During the course of this week, the Caulfield DRU has removed more than $380,000 of methylamphetamine, heroin and cocaine from Victorian streets, seized more than $1.1 million in allegedly ill-gotten cash, and arrested three people for trafficking. Our experienced and dedicated detectives are working together with other specialist and regional areas to disrupt and dismantle drug trafficking networks, and most importantly, stop drugs from hitting Victorian streets.”
