18 year old holder man busted for drugs at the Weston skate park

By johnboy - 17 July 2012 9

An 18-year-old Holder man has been arrested after ACT Policing executed a search warrant and seized drugs from his car and house yesterday afternoon (July 16).

Around 12.30am last Saturday (July 14), officers from Woden General Duties searched a blue Ford XR6 at the Weston skate park, after reports of people acting suspiciously. During the search officers located and seized a quantity of cannabis and tablets, suspected to be ecstasy.

The 18-year-old owner of the vehicle was informed that he would receive a summons to appear before the ACT Magistrates Court at a later date to answer charges relating to the drugs.

Around 2.50pm, yesterday (July 16), officers were conducting a patrol along Streeton Drive, Stirling when they saw the blue Ford XR6 and its three occupants behaving suspiciously in the car park near the ovals.

Officers conducted a traffic stop on the vehicle as it left the car park and commenced an emergency search of the car and occupants.

During the search police located a butterfly knife, a clip seal bag containing a white substance, suspected to be methamphetamine, and a sum of cash strapped to the man’s leg. Officers also located and seized a quantity of cannabis.

A subsequent search warrant at a house in Holder found a quantity of cannabis which was seized.

The 18-year-old was conveyed to the ACT Watch House and charged with a number of drug-related offences. He is expected to face the ACT Magistrates Court later this morning.

Why did they commence the search as an “emergency” search? Odd terminology….

No warrant

An 18 year old bloke driving an XR6? I just turned 50, and I wish I could afford a nice set of wheels like that.

The drug business must’ve been lucrative for this youngster. It’ll probably continue to be so, once he gets his lawyer to sort it all out in a couple of weeks.

You can pick up a 1993 EB XR6 for under $3k these days. If you can’t afford one of those at age 50, you are never going to be able to afford retirement.

I know. It’s a bit of a worry.
