Drugs Seized

A 42-year-old Melba man will face the ACT Magistrates Court today on drug and trafficking charges including cultivating a commercial quantity of a controlled plant.

ACT Policing’s Criminial Investigation Team executed search warrants in Spence last night (Wednesday, 13 June 2018) and seized approximately 250 cannabis plants and over $20,000 in Australian currency. The search of those premises remains ongoing.

The 42-year-old-male was arrested and conveyed to the ACT Watchhouse where he was formally charged.

ACT Policing will continue to target and disrupt the illicit production, distribution and trafficking of drugs in the ACT.

Anyone with any information about the manufacture, distribution or supply of illicit drugs is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers ACT website. Information can be provided anonymously.
