Police carry out dawn raids across Sydney

Daniel Ibrahim with his father John

Police are now searching the homes of Fadi and John Ibrahim in Dover Heights and there are several media reports Michael and Fadi Ibrahim have been arrested in Dubai as part of an investigation into the importation of MDMA, or ecstasy.

Police in Australia say they have "destroyed" two worldwide crime syndicates and seized more than two tons of narcotics "destined for Australian streets".

Their older brother John, whose multi-million dollar Dover Heights mansion was the subject of a thorough raid that lasted all day, was not arrested or charged.

Australian Federal Police and NSW Police have carried out dawn raids at properties across Sydney.

In simultaneous operations, nine men and a woman were arrested in Sydney on Tuesday and five men were arrested in the United Arab Emirates by Dubai police, according to the AFP.

The five Australians arrested in Dubai were expected to be extradited to Australia within the next 60 days, Gaughan said.

"Today, it should be obvious that they are not", he said.

John's model girlfriend Sarah Budge, 27, faces five years in prison after being charged with a firearm offence.

The drugs, which also included 15kg of methamphetamines, had been stopped from entering Australia by authorities in The Netherlands.

Police drug operation "Veda" began in mid-2016 with alleged illegal activity thought to be continuing up until the most recent raids, which were the result of 30 search warrants being executed across Sydney.

The potential street value of the drugs, should they have made it to Australia, was up to 810 million Australian dollars (around $650 million).

AFP Assistant Commissioner Neil Gaughan, National Manager Organised Crime and Cyber, said the resolution was a result of tenacious and innovative police work by the AFP, and strong domestic and worldwide partnerships. This is another example of Australian law enforcement working across cultures'.
