NSW Police have released footage of a daytime drug bust on a suburban shopping strip, targeting a store allegedly selling methamphetamine over the counter.
Police released vision of the raid on Friday, showing plain-clothed officers storming the shop at Windsor, in Sydney's north-west. A bemused onlooker watches on as police run into the store and handcuff a young man standing behind the counter of the store, which appears to sell cigarettes and other tobacco products alongside gifts and clothing.
The man -- in a blue hoodie bearing the emblem "got Amsterdam?", seemingly referencing the known drug hotspot -- is spoken to by police as other officers search the premises. Quantities of cash lay on the counter-top.
Officers then open a small black box on the counter, containing several small plastic zip-lock bags.
The man is then led away into a waiting unmarked car, as police tape cordons off the area.
Two men, aged 24 and 25, have been arrested by police for alleged supply of methamphetamine, or ice, to customers at the store.
The arrests by Strike Force Jenkinson come after a month of investigations into supply of drugs in the area. Police allege the men both supplied the drug from a store on George Street, Windsor, with the 25-year-old man also accused of selling an ice pipe.
The 24-year-old man was charged with four counts of supplying a prohibited drug, and one count of doing so on an ongoing basis.
The 25-year-old man was charged with eight counts of supplying a prohibited drug, one count of doing so on an ongoing basis, and supplying an ice pipe.
Both men were refused bail to appear at Penrith Local Court on Friday.Suggest a correction
