Police have charged members of a Sydney crime syndicate who allegedly stole pharmaceuticals, vitamins and more from supermarkets.
Seven people will face court in Sydney after police raided a storage container in Greenacre and a Darlinghurst convenience store, seizing more than $100,000 in goods.
NSW authorities allege the items - including pharmaceuticals, vitamins, batteries, personal items and confectionary - were stolen from supermarkets and then sold from the storage container or at the convenience store.
A source has revealed that items like personal care products and pharmacy pain killers are easily targeted by thieves because they’re difficult to trace.
Four men aged between 24 and 52 have been charged with a range of offences, including participating in a criminal group, receiving stolen property and dealing with the proceeds of crime.
A 39-year-old woman, a 32-year-old man and a 42-year man are also due to appear in court in the coming weeks over the alleged crimes.
