Two charged after $7m worth of cigarettes stolen from Sydney warehouse
Two men have been charged in relation to the theft of $7 million worth of cigarettes from a warehouse in Sydney’s inner west.
A 46-year-old from Prestons and 44-year-old from Merrylands are accused of knowingly dealing with the proceeds of crime.
Strike Force Pyrope was established by Redfern detectives following the suspected theft of cigarettes from a warehouse in Alexandria in April this year.
Police seized about 1500 cartons of cigarettes, $250,000 in cash and two Toyota Hilux vehicles in raids across Sydney’s south-west.
The pair has been granted conditional bail and will front local court early October.
