Sydney: Drug bust at Centennial Park. Witnesses say one person was arrested. Report on 7 News at 6pm. #Sydney #7News
A large police presence was at the park just before 1pm, and officers could be seen photographing objects on the ground.
Early reports suggest the operation was drug related, while a NSW Police spokeswoman said the operation was connected to “an ongoing investigation by the State Crime Command organised crime squad”.
“No further information is available at this time,” she said, adding that the operation was not related to counter-terrorism.
The footage shows police seizing a number of items, which are being examined at the side of the road.
The operation occurred about 100 metres from the park’s main cafe.
