Two men arrested after more than $1.5 million of ice allegedly found at Mount Pritchard

A Currans Hill man has been arrested this afternoon following the alleged seizure of more than $1.5 million worth of the drug ice was seized at Mount Pritchard yesterday.

Another man was arrested and charged yesterday after officers from Fairfield City Police Area Command searched a home on Phyllis Street about 7am.

Police will allege they found an active clandestine laboratory manufacturing methylamphetamine.

Specialist officers from the Drug and Firearms Squad's Chemical Operations Unit assisted in the dismantling process and subsequent seizure of 16.6 kilograms of methylamphetamine, police say, with an estimated potential street value of $1.625 million.

The 44-year-old man was arrested at the home and taken to Fairfield Police Station where he was charged with manufacturing a prohibited drug (greater than large commercial quantity).

He was refused bail to appear in Fairfield Local Court today.

As part of further investigations, officers executed a second search warrant at a home on Steele Place, Bonnyrigg, yesterday.

During the search, officers allegedly found 30 grams of methylamphetamine, two kilograms of cannabis head and more than $900 cash.

About 1.40pm today, police arrested a 33-year-old man at a home on Ortan Street, Currans Hill.

He was taken to Narellan Police Station where he is currently assisting with inquiries.
