Police charge four after ID documents and drugs seized in Sydney CBD

Four men have been charged after several personal identity documents and illicit drugs were seized in two search warrants in Sydney’s CBD yesterday.

Officers from the Sydney City Police Area Command’s Proactive Crime Team launched an investigation into the supply of banned drugs in Sydney’s CBD area earlier this month.

Following extensive investigations, two search warrants were executed on units at a hotel in Castlereagh Street, Sydney at around 7.40am yesterday (Thursday 28th July 2022).

During the search warrant, more than 65 items were seized from the premises, including illegal drugs, allegedly stolen identity documents and credit cards, cash, a “Rolex” watch, mobile phones and a card reader. All items will be subject to forensic examination.

Two men, aged 39, were arrested and taken to Day Street Police Station. One of the men was charged with property in custody and granted conditional bail to appear in Downing Center Local Court on Wednesday August 17, 2022. The other man was charged with six counts of possession prohibited drug and refused bail to appear at Downing Center Local Court today (Friday July 29, 2022).

A 33-year-old man – wanted on an outstanding warrant for break and enter offenses – was also arrested and taken to Day Street Police Station, where the warrant was executed. He was denied bail and will appear in the same court today (Friday July 29, 2022).

A fourth man, aged 34, was taken to Surry Hills Police Station. He was later released pending further investigation.

Investigations into the incident are continuing.
