$15 million worth of ice and ecstasy seized

MORE than $15 million worth of ice and ecstasy were seized in a major drug bust in Sydney after police stopped two suspects in a car and searched a nearby property on Wednesday.

The bust was a result of a New South Wales Police Drug Squad investigation, Strike Force Finney, set up to investigate the manufacture and supply of drugs.

Police arrested a 35-year-old man from Bondi Beach and a 24-year-old Cranebrook man in a car in Box Hill before searching a nearby property, where a "large scale clandestine laboratory" was found.

Investigators seized 1kg of crystal methylamphetamine (ice), 3lt of methylamphetamine oil and more than 200 "items" used in the drug manufacturing process.

A second property at Bondi Beach was then raided, where about 70,000 of ecstasy (MDMA) tablets, 4kg of MDMA powder, more than 4kg of ice and a ballistics vest were found.

Police reported the raids across the state this year have now uncovered 44 clandestine drug laboratories.

The two men were charged with a range of crimes, including several counts of supplying commercial quantities of prohibited drugs.

The men were refused bail and appeared in Parramatta Local Court on Thursday, where a second court date was set for late August.
