A 31-year-old Waramanga man will face court today (11 April) on multiple drug-related charges after police searched his vehicle and home.

Police said he would face 11 charges including trafficking cocaine, methamphetamine and MDMA.

About 10:20 am on Thursday (9 April) 2020, police executed a search warrant on the man and his vehicle at a service station in Weston Creek, before executing a second warrant on the man’s residence in Waramanga.

ACT Policing’s Crime Disruption Team found substances believed to be methylamphetamine, cocaine and MDMA, drug paraphernalia, ammunition and cash.


Police also found a bundle of cash.

The man’s vehicle was also seized after checks showed it had been involved in several fail-to-stop incidents.

The man will face the ACT Magistrates Court charged with trafficking in a controlled drug other than cannabis, possession of property suspected to be proceeds of crime possession, possession of a controlled substance, possession of a drug of dependence, possession of stolen property, drug driving, unlicensed driving, and driving a vehicle with a false number plate.

Police also arrested a second man in relation to this matter. He has been charged with driving while disqualified, drug driving, and using an unregistered vehicle. He will be summonsed to face court at a later date.
