Operation Ironside: Apostle Broikos has his charges upgraded

·

Apostle Broikos, who is accused of involvement in two large drug syndicates, has had his charges upgraded. 

Apostle Broikos fronted Adelaide Magistrates Court on Tuesday on charges of manufacturing a large commercial quantity of methylamphetamine in Yamba on May 19. 

Apostle Broikos is an 18-year-old recent graduate of Saint Ignatius’ College in Athelstone and is being tried alongside his uncle Theodore Broikos as part of the Operation Ironside crackdown. 

David Edwardson QC told the court, for Broikos, that he is yet to establish a link between Broikos and a drug lab in Morphett Vale. 

The Australian Federal Police (AFP) allege that Broikos delivered cash and supplied chemicals to the lab. 

Mr. Edwardson says the possibility that Broikos distributed or sold phones with the encrypted AN0M app installed “is not illegal” and won’t “stand in the way of him getting” the home bail that Broikas has requested. 

The AN0M app was responsible for tracking and arresting hundreds of people on a variety of charges in Adelaide as part of Operation Ironside.
