Two men were formally refused bail at Wagga Wagga Local Court last week for their alleged involvement in drug distribution.
Following extensive inquiries, officers from the Wagga Wagga Region Enforcement Squad (RES), with assistance from Monaro RES, South East RES, Riverina Police District and Traffic and Highway Patrol, executed three search warrants in Estella, Wagga Wagga and Lake Albert last week.
The warrants were executed as part of Strike Force Bohr, established to investigate the distribution of cocaine in Wagga Wagga.
Police executed a search warrant at a business in Baylis Street, Wagga, on 12 May and arrested Tyler Disbury at the scene.
The 27-year-old fronted Wagga Wagga Local Court on the same day charged with two counts of supplying a prohibited drug (small and commercial quantity), receiving/disposing of stolen property and knowingly dealing with proceeds of crime.
The Wagga man was also charged with driving a vehicle with an illicit drug present in their blood.
Disbury made no bail application and it was formally refused by Magistrate Rebecca Hosking, who set his next court date for 17 May at Wagga Wagga Local Court.
Police also executed a search warrant at a home in Samson Street, Estella, where they arrested Zahid Wazir.
Police seized vapes, knuckle dusters, prescription medication, $18,950 in Australian currency, designer shoes and electronic devices from the location, while three vehicles were also towed from the property.
The 24-year-old fronted Wagga Wagga Local Court charged with 22 counts of supplying a prohibited drug (one count of supplying a prohibited drug greater than or equal to commercial quantity), and knowingly dealing with proceeds of crime.
The Estella man was also charged with knowingly directing the activities of a criminal group, larceny, and receiving and disposing of stolen property.
Wazir made no bail application and had his bail refused by Magistrate Hosking, who set his next court date for 12 July at Wagga Wagga Local Court.
Police also executed a search warrant at a home in Taupo Drive in Lake Albert about 9:30 am on 12 May, where they arrested a 32-year-old woman.
The woman was issued with a court attendance notice for four offences, including two counts of supplying prohibited drugs, knowingly dealing with proceeds of crime, and participating in a criminal group contributing to criminal activity.
She was granted conditional bail to appear before Wagga Wagga Local Court on 28 June.
