A man has been arrested by police along with a pregnant woman and her boyfriend over an alleged cocaine deal the couple attended with their one-year-old son.
Police say they found $200,000 in cash in a secret compartment of 24-year-old Dylan Shaw’s car that was meant for Madeline Eade and her boyfriend Troy Vitale.
They also say Eade, 24, and Vitale, 26, had a secret compartment in their own car in which they found 640 grams of cocaine, The Daily Telegraph reported.
Dylan Shaw was one of three people arrested by police last week over an alleged cocaine deal
Madeline Eade and her boyfriend Troy Vitale were also arrested by police on Thursday night
The trio were arrested on Thursday night outside a restaurant in Belmore, Sydney, with the couple’s one-year-old son in the back seat of one of the cars.
Both cars were seized by police.
Shaw, who was arrested following a seven-month investigation, was charged with knowingly dealing with the proceeds of crime and eight counts of drug supply.
He is accused of peddling drugs over social media.

It is alleged that between March and May, Shaw supplied 400g of 2CB, a psychedelic drug, more than 250 grams of MDMA and smaller amounts of ice, court documents show.
When police later raided his home, officers allegedly found $27,400, steroids, ice and drug paraphernalia.
Eade and Vitale have each been charged with one count of commercial drug supply.
All three faced court last week, where bail was refused for each individual.
The trio are due back in court on September 19.
