The Australian Federal Police (AFP) is appealing for public assistance to locate a 32-year-old Melbourne man wanted in relation to his alleged involvement in an international drug syndicate. The syndicate is responsible for importing cocaine and methamphetamine into Australia from Mexico.

The AFP has a warrant for the arrest of Anthony Sitar, who is currently facing serious criminal charges relating to his involvement in this drug importation and the syndicate more broadly.
