This afternoon Greyhound Racing Victoria Investigations Unit and welfare officers conducted a raid on a property at Lara.
The raid followed allegations of illegal activity at the property.
“Today’s raid is the culmination of many months of covert operations. It is a significant day as it demonstrates a much more sophisticated investigations capability within GRV and a greater preparedness for the industry to trust the regulator and provide information about potentially serious matters,” GRV CEO Alan Clayton said, adding that in this matter GRV acted upon information from an external source.
“This is all about the regulator regulating. As we know our industry is made up of many mums and dads who do the right thing. Our actions today will serve as further warning to those who do the wrong thing that we will find you and we will take appropriate action against any illegal activities and serious breaches of rules and regulations.”
GRV will release further information as the matters progress.
