A pharmacist has been charged with supply of prohibited drugs after being caught with large amounts of GBL, ketamine, amphetamine, heroin and cocaine

A 28-year-old Sydney man has been arrested and charged after detectives from Redfern Region Enforcement Squad executed a crime scene warrant at an Epping unit on Saturday.

The man is believed to be a pharmacist although his registration appears to be lapsed.

During the search, investigators located and seized about 70L of GBL, about 1.7kg of ketamine, more than 1kg of amphetamine, 70g of heroin and about 3.5g of cocaine.

Officers also seized $9,970 cash, documentation and items consistent with the supply of prohibited drugs, NSW Police confirmed to the AJP.

The man was arrested at the unit and taken to Ryde Police Station, where he was charged with three counts of supply prohibited drug (large commercial quantity), supply prohibited drugs (commercial quantity), two counts of supply prohibited drug (indictable quantity), knowingly deal with proceeds of crime and owner/occupier knowingly allow use as drug premises.

Police will allege in court that the man was involved in the supply of prohibited drugs across the state.

He was refused bail and appeared at Parramatta Bail Court on Sunday, where he was formally refused bail to reappear at Burwood Local Court on 7 September 2020.

Investigations are continuing, says NSW Police.
