A woman has been charged with supplying prohibited drugs.

In December 2023 Strike Force Greville was set up in relation to the supply of prohibited drugs from a unit block on High Street, Penrith.

It was established that the occupant of the location was a 55-year-old Penrith woman who was allegedly supplying prohibited drugs.

Surveillance was established and telephone warrants were applied for and granted. It is alleged that between February 2024 and March 2024, the woman has supplied prohibited drugs including heroin and methylamphetamine on more than three occasions in a 30 day period for financial gain.

At about 8.00am on Tuesday, March 26 Police have attended the woman’s unit and executed a search warrant where the woman was arrested. A search of the premises located a small resealable plastic bag containing methylamphetamine, and a pencil case containing a quantity of cash.

Also located during the search was a large amount of property believed to be stolen or otherwise unlawfully obtained.

A large amount of identification in other people’s names, blank identification cards, credit cards in other people’s names, an item believed to be a card reading device, a large amount of mobile phones, laptops, and an NSW Police Badge with a warrant card was also found.

Investigations in relation to the property recovered continues.

The woman was bail refused and will appear in Penrith Local Court on Friday, April 12.
