A 19-year-old Queanbeyan man is today facing drug charges after he was arrested after an incident in a Canberra night club yesterday morning (December 1).
Around 3.30am yesterday police attended a City night club in response to a call from security.
The man allegedly had been speaking to a woman he knew and forced a capsule believed to contain methamphetamine (MDMA) into her mouth. The woman was able to remove the partially dissolved capsule from her mouth and alerted security.
Police searched the man and seized 43 capsules and two tablets believed to contain MDMA, as well as one gram of cocaine.
