In a significant operation, police in Sydney’s western suburbs uncovered a staggering 722kg of Xanax stashed in a storage unit, marking the largest pharmaceutical drug seizure in the history of New South Wales. The haul, estimated to be worth $12 million, was discovered during a probe into the interstate movement of cash linked to illicit activities.

During the investigation, law enforcement officers intercepted a truck in Wagga Wagga and seized $1 million in cash concealed in shopping bags. Subsequently, a 28-year-old male driver was apprehended and charged with supplying a prohibited drug exceeding a large commercial quantity and knowingly engaging with the proceeds of crime.

The suspect was taken into custody and denied bail. He was scheduled to appear before the Wagga Wagga Local Court on Thursday for his alleged involvement in drug trafficking and handling illicit funds. This operation underscores the ongoing efforts of authorities to combat drug-related crimes and disrupt criminal networks operating across state borders.
