As part of inquiries, strike force investigators identified two men, both aged 35, along with another 48-year-old man, were linked to up to 12 break and enters and methamphetamine supply across the St George area.

On Monday 2 August 2021, police executed a search warrant at a property on Forest Road, Penshurst, where they seized various items that were suspected stolen.
