June program results released

Posted on 21/07/2020

During June we received 182 contacts from people wanting to share what they know about drug making, growing and dealing in their community. Your information led to the discovery of a clandestine drug lab in the metropolitan area as well as seizure of trafficable quantities of cannabis plants and dried cannabis, heroin and methamphetamine.

We also saw people passing on information about illegal firearms, the murder of McLaren Vale grandfather Stanley Broadwood, the unsolved cold case murder of Whyalla service station owner Peter Seaford in 1989 and fatal crashes at Mawson Lakes and Lockleys.

Our unsolved weekly crime segments asked for information about the death of Kensington Park woman Ann Marie Smith, the identity of two men caught on CCTV breaking into Bar Torino in the city, the disappearance and suspected murder of Brian Cairney in 2010 and an intruder who broke into an Unley home while an elderly resident was inside.
