Arrests for sale and manufacture of drugs in Albury linked to Bandidos outlaw motorcycle gang

Four people, including two Bandidos outlaw motorcycle gang members, have been arrested for alleged drug-dealing and manufacture in Albury.

Police raided a Kooba Street home on Wednesday morning, allegedly seizing a large amount of drugs, mainly methamphetamine.

Detective Inspector Winston Woodward said the Albury drug unit had been working on Strike Force Stoutland over the past four months.

The case of Alina Yosif, 26, was briefly mentioned in Albury Bail Court on Wednesday, but she did not appear.

Her lawyer said Yosif would apply for bail tomorrow and the other accused – men aged 34, 26 and 66 years old – would also appear.

“It is a nice ongoing effort between raptor police and the Albury drug unit which has brought about the charges,” Inspector Woodward said.

“Ice is a problem across NSW so anytime that we can bring people before the courts for the possession and supply of ice is a bonus.”
