Police raid Melbourne nightclubs

HIGH volumes of ecstasy and other amphetamines are being trafficked in some nightclubs in Melbourne.

Three people – all in their 20s – have been charged after police raided nightclubs around Melbourne on October 23.

Two people escaped with warnings from police and another three were given drug diversions.

Senior Sergeant Don Brown from Melbourne’s Divisional Response Unit said ecstasy was the most common illegal drug found.

He said police would continue to carry out passive alert detector dog operations at events, on public transport and other venues to sniff out drug offenders.

“Police want people to enjoy the nightlife in the city without using illicit drugs,” Sen-Sgt Brown said.

“Police want to get the message through that this type of behaviour will not go unnoticed.”

Meld Magazine was incorporated as an independent not-for-profit media outlet in September 2008 to reach out to international students in Melbourne, and provide students the opportunity to gain real work experience.

Many international students live in or around the city because of the proximity to their colleges and universities, and that was where we decided to focus our efforts first. Many of us live, work and study locally too. Our editorial team is made of both local and international students, and it has worked to our advantage in providing local content in every sense of the word.
