Horsley man faces drug supply charge

Two men, including one from Horsley, have been charged with drug offences, following an operation by Sydney's Joint Organised Crime Group (JOCG).

Two packages – one containing about five kilos of methamphetamine from the US and another containing 25 kilos of pseudoephedrine concealed in buckets of body building protein powder – were identified during the investigation.

These packages were intercepted and substituted by JOCG investigators, who then conducted a controlled delivery operation.

It will be alleged that a 30-year-old Canadian national took possession of both substituted packages, before passing one onto the 44-year-old Horsley man.

The men were arrested on Wednesday.

Both men were charged with supplying a large commercial quantity of drugs.

The Canadian national was also charged with attempting to possess a commercial quantity of drugs.

Both are scheduled to appear in court on Thursday.
