With the assistance of the Air Wing, the motorcycles were followed to a residential property in Altona Meadows where the two riders were apprehended by attending officers.

During the arrest, the Air Wing reportedly observed a third man attempting to conceal an item at the back of the property. The officers were able to locate the item, which is believed to contain 367 grams of heroin. The man was also taken into custody. A subsequent search of the property led to the seizure of $2910 in cash, $4500 in counterfeit notes, an ASP baton, two Rolex watches, and a small amount of steroids.

A 33-year-old man from Altona Meadows has been charged with multiple offences, including trafficking a commercial quantity of heroin, possession of steroids, possession of proceeds of crime, and possession of a controlled weapon. He is scheduled to appear at Werribee Magistrates’ Court today.

The two other men, aged 25 and 29, from Altona Meadows and Seabrook respectively, have been charged with dangerous driving while being pursued by police, unlicensed driving, and other speed-related offences. They have been bailed to appear at Werribee Magistrates’ Court on October 7.

The arrests were part of a police operation that took place over Wyndham last night which saw multiple police vehicles intercepting drivers around the area.

Police are urging anyone who witnessed the incident, has dashcam footage, CCTV footage, or any other information that could assist with the investigation to contact Crime Stoppers at 1800 333 000 or submit a confidential report online at www.crimestoppersvic.com.au.
