Drug raid leads to illegal DVD bust

Lab could have made three million discs per year.

Victorian Police raided a home in Melbourne's south-west this week expecting to find a drug lab, only to be greeted by a large-scale illegal DVD burning operation instead.

The raid netted over 30,000 DVDs, 117 DVD-R burners, eight computers and five printers, according to a statement by the Australian Federation Against Copyright Theft (AFACT).

Three men aged between 27 and 35 were being interviewed by Police in connection with the raid.

Police were continuing to find DVD syndicates operating out of homes and factories across the western suburbs.
 
“We believe we shut down a major operation last night,” Altona RRU Senior Constable David Kerr said.

“Such syndicates are often linked to a range of other criminal activity affecting local communities.
 
“We will continue to work with the Australian Federation Against Copyright Theft in finding those responsible and dealing with them accordingly.”
