Two charged with drug trafficking

Facing court

A man and a woman have been charged with trafficking in methamphetamine following the execution of a search warrant in Gordon last night (Wednesday, 11 September 2019).

About 7pm, police executed the search warrant and located a trafficable quantity of what is believed to be methamphetamine inside the home.

Also located at the residence were two conducted energy weapons and $6100 in cash.

A 40-year-old woman was charged with trafficking in a controlled drug other than cannabis, possessing prohibited weapons and breaching a good behaviour order.

While police were at the house, a 31-year-old man entered the property and was subsequently searched. A clip-seal bag containing a substance believed to be methamphetamine and $700 in cash were located in a bag the man was carrying.

The man was charged with trafficking in a controlled drug other than cannabis.

Both the man and woman are expected to appear in the ACT Magistrates Court today (Thursday, 12 September 2019).
