By johnboy - 27 April 2013 20

ACT Policing has arrested and charged a 50 year-old man following the execution of a number of Drugs of Dependence Act search warrants yesterday afternoon (Friday, April 26).

At approximately 2.15pm police intercepted a vehicle on Coppins Crossing bridge in the ACT. A search was undertaken and police located and seized a small amount of heroin along with approximately $6500 cash.

Later that afternoon members of ACT Policing’s Criminal Investigations team executed a further search warrant on a house in Flynn at around 5.15pm. A search of the premises located a quantity of heroin along with approximately $30 000 cash. A the completion of the search warrant a 50 year-old-man was taken into custody.

Police also executed another two search warrants on premises in Dunlop and Florey where other evidentiary material was seized.

Police estimate that the heroin seized during the search warrants has a potential street value of approximately $80 000.

The alleged offender was conveyed to the ACT Watch House and charged with drug trafficking. He will face the ACT Magistrates Court today where police will be opposing bail.

One would hope that this case doesn’t take years before we get a judgement as in the trafficking charge against Mr. Dib who was acquitted on 19 April 2013 after being arrested on 21 November 2008!

Stupid place for a stop.

Fantastic place for a stop. Nowhere for the perp to flee to, reduced chance of risk to passers by. Plenty of time to get inits in position front and rear. You were a little inconvenienced? I’m terribly, terribly, terribly sorry.

Awesome work coppers. Why not do this more often instead of wasting huge time and money on weed.

It appears that he was ambushed and wasn’t keen to emulate one of the Townsville rapists a few days ago who temporarily avoided capture by fleeing into the river with the plod in hot pursuit.The plod took one look at the river and thought i ain’t going in there,no sir!

I drove along there too, had to wait for a few minutes for the road to clear. Kudos to the guy who got out of his ute and stood at the bend in the road (Weston bound) to indicate for people to slow down so they didn’t round the corner and have to slam the brakes.

They’d spend a hell of a lot more time and money investigating petrol drive-offs. Possibly the most preventable crime ever.

Is that a big thing? Don’t really here about it much.

Yes. Preventable by petrol station owners having CCTV cameras that actually work to assist police in identifying the driver and the vehicle. Also, if the offenders car had stolen number plates (which is the norm) what exactly do you expect the police to do ?

To compare petrol drive-offs to the extensive destruction of lives and families by drugs is simply moronic.

Well done AFP on this one.

What’s moronic is completely missing the point of someone’s post then replying in a rather indignant and sooky manner.

It’s very common. My point – which another poster missed completely – is that the investigation of cannabis related offences generally isn’t that time consuming or expensive, whereas much lesser crimes such as petrol thefts are.

Petrol drive-offs can easliy by prevented by re-introducing “pay in advance” which worked well in the 1970’s.

That heli can’t be cheap to run.
