“Designed to disrupt the supply chain of illicit drugs such as cannabis, methamphetamine and cocaine – the initiative aims to encourage members of the community to report anything they know about drug dealing offences.”

Detectives spent hours seizing and examining a number of items from inside a property in Melbourne’s south-east this morning after executing a drug search warrant.

A number of cannabis plants were among the items removed from the property in Cranbourne after police swarmed the home around 5.30am.

“My dogs start up and then all of a sudden the police saying the usual – your house is surrounded, come out quietly”, a local resident told 9News.

“It was really scary because my other half woke me up and all I hear him saying is Justine, the police are here”.

The critical incident response team assisted with the raid and a 28-year-old man arrested at the scene.

Police say this raid was sparked by a tip-off from the community coinciding with Crime Stoppers launching the ‘dob in a dealer’ campaign today encouraging people to speak up when they notice suspicious activity.
