Raid uncovers more than 100 boxes of prescription medication, steroid injections, pseudoephedrine and dexamphetamine tablets

A 36-year-old male pharmacist has been charged after police searched his home in Lorn, NSW on the morning of Wednesday 29 June.

Searches were also conducted earlier in the month at the man’s home as well as his workplace, a pharmacy in Rutherford.

During the raids, police allegedly located over 100 boxes of prescription medication, a number of steroid injections, pseudoephedrine and dexamphetamine tablets, as well as other restricted substances.

The pharmacist was taken to Maitland Police Station and charged with several offences including five counts of supplying a prohibited drug, two counts of supplying an indictable quantity of a prohibited drug, and two counts of possessing a restricted substance.

He was refused bail and will appear at Maitland Local Court on Thursday 30 June.
