Sydney Drug Bust: Man charged over $45 million haul

A MAN has been charged after police allegedly uncovered more than 100kg of drugs worth an estimated $45 million in a suburban Sydney home.

The 47-year-old was taken into custody by strike force detectives at South Penrith just after 5am on Friday.

Shortly after the arrest, investigators executed a search warrant at a nearby home, where they located and seized about 85kg of methylamphetamine, 13kg of cocaine, and 2kg of MDMA.


In total, the drugs have an estimated potential street value of more than $45 million.


The man was taken to Penrith Police Station and charged with three counts of large commercial drug supply.

He was refused bail and appeared at Parramatta Bail Court, where he was formally refused bail to reappear at Penrith Local Court on Friday 14 September.
