$5m of heroin seized
POLICE seized heroin with a street value of up to $5 million in raids across Melbourne yesterday.
Detective Senior Sergeant Anthony Silva said the raids smashed a major drug importing syndicate.
A 55-year-old man from West Footscray, a 49-year-old woman from Richmond, and her 20-year-old daughter were arrested by police during the raids and were expected to be charged last night with importing and trafficking drugs.
As well as the two kilograms of heroin, ice and ecstasy were also among the drugs found at premises in West Footscray, Collingwood and Richmond.
