    Asian Crime Squad detectives have charged a man over the supply of 44kg of pseudoephedrine which was allegedly discovered in washing powder cartons.

    Strike Force McIlwain comprises detectives from the State Crime Command’s Asian Crime Squad, in partnership with the NSW Crime Commission, and was established in October 2009 to investigate the alleged commercial supply of drugs.

    Detectives charged a 46-year-old man at Central Local Court last week with supply large commercial quantity of a prohibited drug.

    He was refused bail and will appear at Central Local Court on Tuesday 18 May 2010.

    The charges relate to the alleged commercial supply of 44kg of pseudoephedrine which was seized during a search warrant executed by police on premises at Lachlan Street, Waterloo, on 7 December 2009.

    Police located and seized about $1.16 million, a loaded handgun, as well as a number of cardboard washing powder cartons during the execution of the warrant in December last year.

    Subsequent tests revealed the white powder contained in the washing powder cartons was pseudoephedrine, with an estimated potential street value of $1.3 million.

    During the execution of the warrant, police also located and seized a substance believed to be crystal methylamphetamine as well as an automatic firearm, two loaded magazines, and a silencer.

    The NSW Crime Commission has placed a restraining order on $14 million worth of assets in connection with the investigation. Investigations by Strike Force McIlwain detectives are continuing.
