At 7 o’clock this morning, officers arrested a 37 year old man at Campbelltown.

A search warrant was subsequently executed, where police seized a Nissan X-trail and electronic items, which will undergo further forensic examination.

The man has been taken to Campbelltown Police Station, where charges are expected to be laid.
