The newly formed ‘Ice Strike Team’ has made its first arrests.

A man and woman from Mount Barker are among four South Australians charged with trafficking a large commercial quantity of a controlled drug last week.

Police allege they were importing 200 litres of 1.4 Butanediol, a chemical similar to GHB or Fantasy.

The specialist multi-agency 'Ice Strike Team' formed at the start of February 2019 to target the supply and distribution of meth and other hard drugs and reduce their, often tragic, impact on the community.
