Drug bust removes $25,000 worth from local streets

POLICE seized ice, heroin, ecstasy, GHB and cannabis – with an estimated street value of $25,000 – from a Sale property last week.

On Tuesday, Wellington Criminal Investigation Unit detectives raided an east Sale address, where they allegedly found trafficable quantities of the drugs.

Police say a substantial amount of cash, stolen goods and property suspected of being the proceeds of crime were also seized.

A 36-year-old Sale man has been charged, and remanded in custody to appear at Sale Magistrates’ Court on July 14, while a 27-year-old woman has been bailed to appear at the Sale Magistrates’ Court on December 22.

Police began investigations after receiving information from the public.
