Big weed busts in the Inner North

By johnboy - 12 January 2011 40

This in from ACT Policing:

City Station police officers were kept busy yesterday (Tuesday January 11) after executing two separate drug warrants at two locations.

About 12.30pm general duties officers were conducting a foot patrol of Ainslie Village when they observed a number of people coming and going from a unit. Police knocked on the door and once opened saw a number of bags containing what is suspected to be cannabis in plain view. An emergency search warrant was executed with over 65 clip seal bags of cannabis located with an approximate total weight of 285 grams.

A 42-year-old Ainslie man will be summonsed to attend the ACT Magistrates Court at a later date charged with a number of drug offences.

In the second incident police executed a Drugs of Dependence search warrant about 9.30pm on a home in Watson. Police were notified of two males acting suspiciously around the home earlier in the day. While canvassing the home to locate the males’ police observed a number of cannabis plants in the backyard.

Upon executing the search warrant the two males were located inside one of the bedrooms. Police seized 75 cannabis plants in various sizes and recovered stolen property from a burglary earlier in the day.

The 16-year-old male was arrested for breach of bail and is likely to face further charges at a later date. The 18-year-old Watson man was arrested and bailed from the ACT Watch House. He will be summonsed to attend the ACT Magistrates Court at a later date, charged with theft, aggravated burglary, possess prohibited substance and cultivate controlled plant.

North District Superintendent Mick Calatzis said “While these matters are concerning to us, the detection and apprehension of these suspects could not have occurred without strong community support, which is a platform of our intelligence led policing”.

No, how would you know anyway sounds like you are a dope smoker, which makes you dopey!!!!
Apart from that, I have seen the effects from people who have smoked dope, depression, suicide, lack of incentive to work a job, psychosis, shall I go on.

Is that what made you a hooker?

Well its about time, i know that the Ainslie village dealer has been operating there for at least 12 mths, i thought that they would of got busted ages ago? It just goes to show how slow our police are in dealing with pot dealers, but like they say there will be another one waiting to take his place, as there is so much money to be made if you have the guts to do it

My ex was caught a few years ago for multiple unlicensed/unrego etc stuff. He tried his heart out to dob in everyone he knew selling pot (to get out of his fines) No cop gave a ratz. They told him to dob in someone selling bigger stuff. Plainly told him they were not interested in the pot.
They didn’t even take the names of the people he was mentioning.

It is like lotto really.
Unless the cops want “that dealer/grower” for something else and use the pot as an excuse for a raid, there is no way of knowing if the cops will bother.

So he was a crim, a grass and a toe rag? Miss him?

Having spent quite a bit of time in Amsterdam I agree with legalising marijuana. Yes for some people it’s one step closer on the way to becoming a heroin addict but most of us who smoke don’t want or need anything stronger.

Agreed.

Sounds like a fine, upstanding citizen…

I know both the kids who got busted. The 18 yr old is a scumbag criminal and even though it was only pot, he deserves to get locked up. You could attribute a good portion of robberies in the inner north to him. Heard that hes gettin 4 years

Yes, just fricking legalise it. then the organised crime element is is taken away and the police dont have to waste their time on small crap like this.

It’s quite funny to look into the future and see a time when the drug enforcement policies is consigned mercilessly to the same dustbin of history that the American Prohibition lies in. Oh.. sorry, many of you lack the imagination. Never mind, to the rest of us it’s as certain as the continued rising of the sun each morning.
