·1-min read

A NSW police officer has been slapped with more charges over his alleged involvement in a 'dial-a dealer' style drug ring.

In March, NSW Police set up Strike Force Ince to investigate a syndicate believed to be distributing cannabis in Sydney's southwest.

Last month, police raided properties at Lurnea, Carnes Hill, Liverpool and Busby and seized electronic devices, 4.6kg of cannabis, $50,000 cash, vehicles, an electronic stun device, a ballistics vest and clothing.

Three men - including a 31-year-old officer and two others aged 27 and 42 - and a 58-year-old woman were arrested and charged. They remain before the courts.

More charges, including two counts of supplying a prohibited drug and knowingly dealing with the proceeds of crime, were laid against the officer on September 1.

The officer is a senior constable attached to a specialist command and has been suspended without pay.

He will appear in Liverpool Local Court on Monday.
