Illicit drugs seized in Wright

ACT Policing has seized a substance suspected to be MDMA during the search of a vehicle in Wright yesterday (1 May 2015).

About 11.10pm, police intercepted a female driving a Mazda sedan. The vehicle was then subject to a Drugs of Dependence Act (DODA) search warrant where approximately 170 capsules of a substance suspected to be MDMA was located and seized. A small amount of suspected methamphetamine and cocaine was also located and seized.

The search was part of a long-running ACT Drugs and Organised Crime Team investigation, targeting a criminal syndicate involved in the distribution of illicit substances in the ACT.

A 24-year-old Wright woman will face the ACT Magistrates Court this morning, charged with possessing a drug of dependence and trafficking a controlled drug.
