Police have laid 128 charges against ten people from Western Australia and New South Wales as part of six month operation on an interstate drug syndicate.
WA and New South Wales police seized about $1 million in drugs, seven guns, diamonds and almost $500,000 in cash.
Police have also seized a property in Perth's north eastern suburbs, which they allege was being used to distribute drugs.
Detective Inspector Alan Morton says it is alleged drugs were being moved from New South Wales to WA.
Drug dealing to these people is all about greed and getting the maximum amount of money they can possibly get they're driven by necessity, he said.
If someone shares that same thought process and they work collaboratively to get the drugs into this state and then distribute them locally, that's what happened in this case.
