Reportedly linked to an investigation into three suspected murders in Adelaide’s south, investigators also allegedly found $50,870 buried inside a container, along with jewellery and an e-bike. 

A 38-year-old man and his parents, a 62-year-old woman and a 50-year-old man, were arrested and charged with trafficking in a commercial quantity of a controlled drug, possessing prescription drugs and money laundering. 

The trio were refused bail and fronted Christies Beach Magistrates Court on Monday.

The targeted raid was a part of a police investigation into three brutal murders in Adelaide’s south during 2020.

Last month a reward of $600,000 was announced for information on the three murders.

Anyone who provides information that would lead to a murder conviction of Trevor King, Robert Atkins or Jeff Mundy would be awarded $200,000 – or $600,000 if all murders were solved.
