  • Huge stash worth $42 million discovered in Pyrmont

Two men have been charged after $42 million worth of drugs were found stashed in suitcases in central Sydney.

During a house search in Pyrmont on Friday, police seized almost 120 kilograms of drugs.

The haul included 61kg of cocaine blocks, 29kg of ketamine and 27kg of MDMA pills in seven suitcases as part of a drug “safe house” investigation.


Two men, aged 24 and 31, were arrested at the property and each charged with three counts of supplying a prohibited drug in large commercial quantities.

They were refused bail and are due to appear in Parramatta Magistrates Court on Saturday.

NSW Police Detective Commissioner Peter Faux said authorities were continuing to target drug supplies across the state.

“We can relentlessly pursue anyone involved in bringing drugs onto our streets,” Det Supt Faux said.
