Melbourne property management agent caught amid drug arrests

A property management agent from Melbourne’s northwest allegedly allowed rental homes to be used as cannabis grow houses has been arrested in a high-level drug investigation.

North West metro regional crime squad arrested five people this week who were accused of involvement in a major syndicate with interstate links.

As part of Operation Skyknight, warrants were executed on Wednesday morning in Roxburgh Park, Gladstone Park and Glenroy, as well as Bankstown in Sydney and Port Macquarie on the NSW coast.

Three men — a 22-year-old and 25-year-old from Roxburgh Park and a 68-year-old from Gladstone Park — were arrested and remanded in custody.

A further two men were charged on July 13 after separate police raids.

“Police are alleging that the 68-year-old male was using his position as a rental property manager to facilitate several crop houses across the northwestern suburbs,” Victoria Police said.
