A Sydney chauffeur has been arrested and charged for allegedly delivering cocaine instead of passengers to the affluent suburbs of Sydney’s east.
Police claim the 41-year old man, who has been under investigation by police for two months, was using a hired, black Mercedes Benz to deliver the drugs.
He was arrested by police on Tuesday while allegedly making a drug deal in a Haymarket car park.
Police claimed to have seized two grams of cocaine at the scene of the arrest and a large quantity of unprescribed steroids at the man’s home in Arncliffe.
He was charged with two counts of drug supply and one count each of supplying prohibited drugs on an ongoing basis, possessing prohibited drugs and possessing a prescribed restricted substance.
He will appear in court on January 13 next year.
Police said using a hire car was a unique method of drug supply they had not witnessed before, according to Sky News.
