An animal loving grandmother is accused of running an elaborate meth operation from her home. On Friday, at her house in Hurstville, south of Sydney, Loretta Robinson, 68, was arrested with police reportedly seizing marijuana, methylamphetamine and a weapon.
Police monitoring units were set up around the home of the grandmother where policemen observed individuals visiting the house to purchase drugs, police claim. A taser, mobile phones and a set of scales were also allegedly found by police during her arrest. The grandmother of three drew the police attention during an investigation into the supply of drugs in the St George area in August, police said.
Robinson was charged with two counts of supplying a prohibited drug, nine counts of possessing an illegal drug and possessing an unauthorised firearm. She has also been charged with being an owner knowingly allowing use as drug premises and recklessly dealing with proceeds of crime.
After appearing at Sutherland Local Court, Robinson was denied bail and is due to reappear on September 19. Despite police believing that Robinson is separate from an elaborate drug operation, her Facebook account paints a family-oriented animal lover’s image. She regularly posts pictures with her grandchildren and dog Rocky, as well as posting updates on lost animals.
