Scone drug supply ring busted by police


Three men have been arrested and charged with multiple drug offences in relation to the alleged supply of cocaine in the Upper Hunter.

The men were nabbed by police in two separate raids in Sydney and Scone yesterday including at a licensed premises on Kelly Street and two nearby homes.

Hunter Valley Crime Manager Detective Inspector Matt Zimmer says the arrests follow extensive investigations which began in December last year.

"Strike Force Bunks was established in December 2021 by Hunter Valley Police District to investigate the alleged supply of prohibited drugs in the Scone area," he said.

All three will face Scone Local Court next month.
