Woman charged with drug trafficking and other offences

Arrested for drug trafficking

A 33-year-old woman from the suburb of Ngunnawal has been charged with drug trafficking and other offences following a police operation overnight.

The woman was involved in a traffic collision in Fraser on 29 February 2020 where a large amount of cash and methylamphetamine were discovered in a bag in her possession.

Investigations into the activities of the woman continued until last night (30 March 2020) when a vehicle stop of the woman in Dickson and an associated search of her Ngunnawal residence discovered further cash and methylamphetamine.

This operation has resulted in the seizure of approximately 90grams of methylamphetamine and more than $8000 in cash.

The woman has been charged with trafficking in a controlled drug, possession of property suspected to be the proceeds of crime, negligent driving, drug driving and breaching a good behaviour order.

She is expected to appear in the ACT Magistrates court today where bail will be opposed.

Anyone with information about the 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.
