Tasmania Police Detective Inspector Kate Chambers said individuals who seek to profit from the sale of illicit substances in the community can expect police attention.
"These arrests send a clear message that not only will we target syndicates responsible for the importation and distribution of drugs, we will also target those in the community who see drugs as a profitable commodity," Inspector Chambers said.
