Sydney man extradited to face drug-trafficking and drug supply charges - 13 November 2018

A 48-year-old Sydney man was extradited from New South Wales today and has been charged by the Crime and Corruption Commission (CCC) with drug-trafficking, drug supply and other offences.

The charges relate to Operation Gloss, a 2014 investigation focused on the Queensland-based activities of a criminal syndicate which was allegedly producing and trafficking crystal methyl amphetamine, or ice, in New South Wales and on the Gold Coast.

The CCC will allege the man was involved in the supply and trafficking of approximately 3.5kg of ice.

Yesterday CCC officers successfully applied for the extradition during a court hearing in Sydney. The man was then remanded in custody.

He was charged this afternoon by the CCC and is expected to appear in the Brisbane Magistrates Court tomorrow morning.

Operation Gloss significantly disrupted this criminal syndicate and their supply of drugs into Queensland.

The CCC continues to target participants in criminal organisations that are active in illicit markets of highest threat to Queensland communities.

The CCC is an independent agency combating major crime and reducing corruption for the benefit of the Queensland community.
