More than $15 million worth of drugs, including 70,000 MDMA tablets, have been seized after police uncovered a clandestine lab in Sydney.

Detectives stopped a car on Wednesday in Box Hill, north west of Sydney, and arrested two men, a 35-year-old from Bondi and 24-year-old from Cranebrook.

Police raided a nearby property and allegedly uncovered a large scale drug lab and one kilogram of the drug ice.

Three litres of methylamphetamine oil and more then 200 items used to make ice and MDMA was also found.

Hours later another raid was carried out at a Bondi unit, where police allegedly found 70,000 tablets believed to be MDMA, weighing in at about 17 kilograms.

Officers also found 4kg of MDMA powder, more than 4kg of ice and a ballistics vest in the beachside suburb unit.

Police believe the total potential street value of the drugs is about $15 million.

Both men have been charged with a drug manufacturing, and the Bondi man is also facing drug supply offences.

This year alone NSW police have shut down 44 drug labs.

Detective Superintendent Tony Cooke said officers involved in the major drug haul had been working around the clock.

“That hard work has now been rewarded with a significant quantity of drugs not making it to the street,” the drug squad commander said.

“We will continue to do everything we can to stop illicit drug syndicates profiting at the community’s loss but members of the public need to continue playing their part too.” Both men were refused bail in Parramatta Local Court on Thursday, and will appear in Central Local Court on August 28.

  1. Hi Robbo, I live 2 doors from ice dealers. I’ve informed Crime stoppers, the local police, the real estate agent (so they can inform their landlord) and other neighbours so they are aware. The police raided a few months ago, found guns and arrested someone. Not long after he was out on bail. I informed the landlord again but he doesn’t care because he gets his rent money every month. The dealing still goes on but now it’s low key. I want them gone – what else can I do? The dealers seem to have the edge over the law. There are many things I would like to do but they’re illegal and i’m not going to jail for a drug dealer. Any suggestions? Ta, Hal_nbak

    • Hi there, must be so annoying.If possible I would try and get some video evidence if you see stuff going on. If the cops are not responding, go to the media, even talk back radio. They will get the Police Commissioner on the line and demand answers. The cops beg for help from the community and then get slack on action.

      One thing to NOT DO, is confront dealers/cooks at the premises, in their car or down the street etc.

      Contact me with the details and I will make the calls for a “Concerned resident”

      But don’t ignore and don’t give up.We need this scum out of our neighborhoods mate…Thanks for commenting

  2. Yeah ice dealers are probably the lowest and most worthless of all the drug manufacturing and dealing types. You could call in a drone air strike and just level the place and then call in a second strike to ‘bounce the rubble’ – just to be sure these brain dead sociopaths have been vaporized or doused in molten napalm – that should stop them for a while, the pre-cambrian motherfuckers are like pond scum – they just keep coming back and clinging to edges like the single cell bacteroids they truly are.

  3. Hellsy, – Go straight to the top!… Personally I myself would try and get in contact with a face to face appointment or write a letter to the, Victoria Police- Assistant Commissioner Steve Fontana. He is a honest very experienced detective and investigating cop and will, Im sure listen and act on any of the above Drug manufacturing and dealing activities that you are witness to, and I am sure he will get in direct contact with his colleagues in the Drug Squads of N.S.W. Police Service or higher up , Drug Squad Investigators, to find a way of shutting them down!……..Go straight to the Top!… Vic Pol or N.S.W. Pol….. Should get some results then on these low life MDMA and ICE Drug Pushers!………Good Luck Mate!……Worth a try. Don’t try to investigate yourself, its to dangerous !…… Vic Pol are at war with Drug manufactures and traffickers at the moment, and I think the same with the N.S.W.POLICE.- There are some good honest cops, now acting on and shutting down the Drugies!…………. .

  4. I hope you do get to shut some more of the insidious drug manufacturers and dealers down! I think when set ups like you described are allowed to continue, it says we are not paying our police force enough (that IS a generalised comment and not to be taken specifically!)
