Drug trial date set

DURING a committal hearing at Sale Magistrate’s Court on Monday and Tuesday, a 61-year-old Winnindoo woman and a 41-year-old Toongabbie man, charged with drug offences, were issued with a court date for their trial.

The duo will join a 29-year-old Winnindoo man and 24-year-old Heyfield woman, who faced a committal hearing earlier this year, in court in June on charges of trafficking a large commercial quantity of methamphetamines and a large commercial quantity of cannabis.

The 61-year-old Winnindoo woman has also been charged with firearms offences.

The 29-year-old Winnindoo man has remained in custody since his arrest last year.

The 24-year-old Heyfield woman was released on bail.

The arrests follow a Wellington Criminal Investigation Unit drugs operation last year.
