Forde eccy bust

By johnboy - 5 August 2011 38

A 21-year-old Forde man was arrested and charged overnight by police for drug trafficking.

Criminal Investigations detectives executed a search warrant at the man’s house around 3.30pm yesterday (Thursday, August 4), and seized over 700 pills suspected to be MDMA and some cannabis. An amount of cash was also seized during the search warrant.

The potential street value for the seized drugs is estimated to be in excess of $20,000.

The man was arrested and taken to the ACT Watch House, where he was charged with traffic in cannabis, traffic in a controlled drug other than cannabis, and possession of property suspected of being proceeds of crime.

He will face the ACT Magistrates Court this morning (Friday, August 5), where bail will be opposed.

The police may have managed to stop as many as 2000 gratuitous sexual acts, 4000 hours of strange rhythmical movements to music and endless hours of soppy talk. Or if the pills where crap, a lot of bitter disappointment. The figures start to stack up.

Is that how you pay for yours? Most just pay with cash.

$30 a pill is about the going rate, or so I’m told.

I can’t see the problem with the police using a figure like this.

Unless we have some expert drug valuers on RA?

Another over exaggerated figure to make it look like the police are doing a better job then they actually are.

And you base that on what? What do you pay for a pill? How do you know it’s over exaggerated?

Nothing. You just have to “put out” occasionally. The bag the pills come in also represents good value.

+1 Tooks.

If you are paying 25 – 30$ per pill or less then it is most likely a dodgy, locally made speed bomb, k-pill or weak MDMA pill.

When ppl are paying around 28$ per pill when buying in lots then it can be safely said that the pills would be imported and of higher quality. I would not touch them these days as they are not a patch on what was going around in 2000 and never will be again.

“potential street value of 20K”….. maybe if every pill head in canberra wanted to buy at the same time and these were the only ones left….

I wonder if the police ever update there supply and demand list for such substances?

It’s traditional to charge the cops more for theirs, has been since the War on Drugs began.

What “street” are they talking about?

What do you pay per pill? Depending on quality, people will pay $30+

You’re obviously paying less than that?

I’m not a fan myself, but the price does seem a bit ridiculous nevertheless.

This isn’t even taking into account the fact that a large amount of drugs like this aren’t sold individually, they’d more likely be sold in bulk lots to people down the chain who would them sell them off (and would get a wholesale discount and then jack up the individual price in order to turn a profit).

Perhaps someone could swing past Costco and see what they’re charging?

You probably couldn’t get bags of under 1000 pills at Costco…

Mr_Clapp, what’s exaggerated?
