Two men have been charged after suspicious bets were placed during the NRL's Dally M awards last year.
In November 2019, Strike Force Mirrabei was established by the Organised Crime Squad's Casino and Racing Investigation Unit (CRIU) after the NRL Integrity Unit reported suspicious betting activity on the 2019 Dally M Coach of the Year Award.
Following extensive inquiries, strike force investigators executed search warrants at two separate residences in Paddington and Waterloo and a business premises in Surry Hills on May 20.
During the searches, police located and seized documentation, electronic devices and computers.
Two men, aged 29 and 31 were issued with court attendance notices on Thursday and were charged with using inside information to bet on the award outcome.
Police will allege in court that the men placed bets on the 2019 Dally M Coach of the Year Award winner with prior knowledge of the result.
It will also be alleged that they shared information with other individuals, who in turn placed bets with various betting agencies.
The men are due to appear at Downing Centre Local Court on August 20, 2020.
Investigations under Strike Force Mirrabei are continuing.
