A 54-year-old Port Melbourne man has been arrested following a raid on a property owned by former Geelong and Essendon coach Mark ‘Bomber’ Thompson on Friday.
Victoria Police said the man was arrested following an investigation into alleged drug trafficking in Port Melbourne.
The man, whose identity police have not confirmed, was released pending enquiries.
“As the man has now been arrested we won’t be providing any further commentary on the matter,” police said in a statement.
Earlier this week, Victoria Police would not comment on the nature of Friday’s raid, only issuing a brief statement.
“Detectives from the Southern Metro and Geelong unit executed a warrant on January 5, 2018, at Rouse St Port Melbourne at 9:30am,” it said.
“No arrests were made, the investigation is ongoing.”
Thompson, a two-time Essendon premiership player and former captain, was an assistant at the Bombers under James Hird at the time of the disastrous supplements program.
The AFL fined him $30,000 for his part in the saga, but Thompson took over the senior role at Essendon for one season in 2014 while Hird served a 12-month suspension.
From 2000-2010 Thompson was the senior coach at Geelong, winning two premierships in a dominant era for the Cats.
