A 30-year-old Parap man, believed to be running a drug syndicate, has been busted with illicit drugs, ice pipes, imitation firearms, and sawfish rostrums among other items following a police raid on Monday.
The man has been arrested after a search warrant was executed and is facing multiple charges for drug and firearm offenses, NT Police said.
Police found three gel blaster imitation firearms, a trafficable quantity of cannabis, methamphetamine, a large sum of cash suspected of being from the supply of drugs, cannabis plants, drug paraphernalia, and three sawfish rostrums.
Detective Acting Senior Sergeant Mathew Akers said police are considering further charges in relation to the sawfish rostrums.
“The realism of these imitation firearms is very concerning,” Sgt Akers said.
“NT Police will continue to target those who possess any type of prohibited weapons, and those who are involved in the supply of drugs in the community.”
The man faces multiple counts of supplying and possessing dangerous drugs, possessing tainted property, possession of prohibited weapons, and cultivating cannabis.
He was scheduled to appear in Darwin Local Court today.
