Men on illegal drug charges to face court today

ACT Policing arrested a 51-year-old Deakin man at Canberra Railway Station, Kingston, about 11.20am yesterday, Thursday 22 April, after executing a search warrant on him and discovering him to be in possession of a substance suspected of being cocaine.

The man had travelled by train from Sydney, and was identified by police upon his arrival. The subsequent search revealed approximately 59 grams of a white powder in a clear plastic bag.

Further tests will be conducted on the substance. If it is confirmed to be cocaine, the estimated street value of the drugs will be almost $20,000.

The man is scheduled to appear in the ACT Magistrates Court today Friday 23 April, charged with trafficking in a controlled drug other than cannabis.

If you have information regarding the trafficking, manufacturing or dealing of illicit drugs please contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or via the Crime Stoppers ACT website.

Police arrest man with commercial quantity of drugs

Meanwhile, a 29-year-old Kambah man was also arrested yesterday, Thursday 22 April, in Canberra City in possession of what police will allege was approximately 1.5 litres of gamma-hydroxybutyrate (GHB), in addition to cannabis and methamphetamines.

The man had arrived in Canberra on a bus from Sydney when police arrested him. A search of his bags located two small bags of cannabis hidden in a boot, and two one-litre bottles containing a liquid believed to be GHB.

Police will allege that during the search the man attempted to empty one of the bottles onto the floor.

Police will further allege that after he was taken to the ACT Watch House, the man attempted to dispose of a bag of white powder suspected of being methamphetamines by flushing it down the toilet in his cell.

The man will face the ACT Magistrates Court today, Friday 23 April, charged with trafficking in a large commercial quantity of a controlled drug and obstructing or hindering a police investigation.

Police urge anyone with information regarding the trafficking, manufacturing or dealing of illicit drugs to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or via the Crime Stoppers ACT website.
