Police dogs bust dozens with drugs in under five hours at Sydney train station

TWENTY-eight people have been caught with drugs in just four-and-a-half hours at a train station in Sydney’s west.

The offenders were swept up in a massive drug dog operation which was conducted at Granville station on Saturday night while scheduled track work was being carried out on the main western train line.

Police used two drug detection dogs to sniff out a total of 30 people during the high-profile operation, dubbed Operation Hound, between 6pm and 10.30pm.


Officers seized cannabis, MDMA, amphetamine and cocaine from 28 people, while two other people were arrested on outstanding warrants for resisting arrest, having goods in custody possessing a knife.

Police warn similar operations will be carried out across the entire public transport network.
