Kalgoorlie Detectives have charged a man in relation to the seizure of 6.24kg of Methlyamphetmine, as part of an operation targeting people in the sale and distribution of illicit drugs.
Detective Senior Sergeant Darryl Noye, said the seizure of 6.24kg of Meth represents the removal of more than 60,000 hits of harm from the local community.
‘The people involved in the distribution of drugs in Kalgoorlie and surrounding region don’t care what impact their actions have on our community, they only car about the profit they make from the misery they leave behind,” he explained.
