Three Tasmanians are facing charges over meth trafficking and a further 11 people will front court for distribution as a state syndicated has been busted.
Three people have been charged with trafficking methamphetamine and 11 people charged with selling it following an operation to target a drug distribution syndicate in the North-West of the state.
The charges relate to the sale of approximately $90,000 of meth and cannabis in a syndicated which has been the subject of a five-month operation.
Operation Rain seized $30,000 worth of illicit drugs and $6000 of cash that had been obtained through the sale of methamphetamine.
Operation spokes person Detective Inspector Kim Steven has told media “We’ve disrupted a significant network for drug distribution across the North-West Coast.'
“10 searches were conducted at addresses in the North-West during the last three weeks" and “We believe all 14 people are part of the one, loosely connected drug distribution syndicate."
Police will allege that the three charged with trafficking were distributing the meth and cannabis to the others for on-selling.
As the full investigation continues, Police have appealed to anybody with information that relates to the illegal distribution of illicit drugs, asking them to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or go online to crimestopperstas.com.au.
The three charged with trafficking are:
Oscar Jyles Dyett, aged 21, of Devonport, who appeared in court this week and released on bail to reappear at a later date.
A woman, aged 22, of Burnie, to appear in court at a later date.
A woman, aged 37, of Penguin, to appear in court at a later date.
