A man was due in court last Friday charged over the commercial supply of ice and heroin. In June, the State Crime Command's Drug & Firearms Squad detectives established Strike Force Bernhardt to investigate drug supply across Sydney.

With BassHill region enforcement squad, they arrested a man, 50, in a WarwickFarm hotel car park about 7.30pm last Thursday.

Police say he was there to supply 1kg of meth and 350g of heroin. They searched a home on Game Street at Bonnyrigg and seized 325g of heroin, 50g of meth, 240g of cannabis and $4000 cash. The man was taken to Fairfield police station and charged with 11 offences, including supplying a large commercial quantity of a drug x 2, supplying a commercial quantity of a drug x 4, supplying an indictable quantity of a drug x 4 and having a prohibited drug. Police say he supplied more than 750g of meth and 55g of heroin on four occasions last month. He was refused bail to be in Parramatta court last Friday. Investigations continue.

Break-and-enter charges

A man has been charged after extensive investigations into the alleged break-and-enter of a home at MaysHill last week. Police say that on last Thursday, a man jumped the fence and smashed the window of a home on Burnett Street before entering and stealing several items. After police were notified, Cumberland Proactive Crime Team officers began an investigation. On Monday, they went to a property on Clyde Street at Guildford at 9am and arrested a man, 41, and took him to Granville police station. About 2pm, police searched the Guildford property and seized items allegedly linked to the break-and-enter. The man was charged with theft and property disposal. He was refused bail to be in Fairfield court next day.

Drivers injured in two-car head-on

A woman was seriously injured in a two-car crash at Luddenham early Tuesday morning. Emergency services were called to The Northern Road after a northbound Yaris and a southbound Corolla collided head-on at 5.25am. The woman driving the Yaris sustained multiple injuries and was treated at the scene by paramedics.

She was due to be airlifted to Westmead hospital once stable. Her female teenaged passenger was uninjured.

The man driving the Corolla was taken by road ambulance to Liverpool hospital suffering leg and abdominal injuries. Police were told the injuries weren't life-threatening. The Northern Road was closed in both directions between Littlefields Road and Elizabeth Drive by Nepean police. The crash-investigation unit was called in. The road was closed for at least two hours.

Appeal for information

Police have re-appealed for information to help find a man who may be able to help with inquiries into a stabbing in March. About 9.20pm on March 17, two men, 29 and 30, went to Flemington station on The Crescent at HomebushWest, where they'd arranged to buy two phones. They met two males and asked to see the phones before paying. One man snatched cash from the younger man and ran away. After a chase, an altercation took place and the younger man was stabbed in the back and stomach. The two fled with the cash in a silver Toyota Camry. About 10.20pm, the injured man and his friend went to Concord hospital and police were called.

Auburn detectives began an investigation and on March 18 searched a house on Derwent Place at BossleyPark. A silver Toyota Camry and some items were seized for examination. Detectives returned to the Bossley Park home about 9am on June 3.

They arrested a man, 21, and took him to Fairfield police station. Charges included robbery in company causing serious physical harm. He was refused bail to be in Fairfield court this Thursday. Police want to speak to a man of Middle Eastern or Asian appearance, in his 20s, about 170-180cm tall, of medium build, with short black hair and a goatee.
