An arrest has been made in Canley Vale as part of a special police operation.

The NSW Police Transport and Public Safety Command conducted a high-visibility operation called Operation Wheel.

The operation was conducted on Thursday and targeted anti-social behaviour on and around Sydney’s public transport network.

Twenty-two trains and 37 railway stations were patrolled during the operation.

Fourteen people were searched, 16 move-on directions were issued and 34 transport infringements were issues.

During the operation, a 20-year-old man was arrested at Canley Vale for the offence of carrying suspected stolen goods.

He was issued a future service court attendance notice to appear at Liverpool Local Court on February 28.

Operation Wheel was designed to minimise crime and anti-social behaviour.

It also aimed to increase passenger safety on the public transport network, at interchanges and commuter car parks.

On Thursday, officers attached to the NSW Police Transport and Public Safety Command’s south/south west sector were deployed in and around major transport interchanges across south-western Sydney, Wollongong and the South Coast.

Operation Wheel took place throughout the day and night.
