A woman has been charged with drug trafficking after officers from Operation Toric made two arrests at the Canberra Outlet Centre.
After allegedly failing to stop for police, officers from the task force say they saw a man and a woman drive a grey Subaru Liberty into the outlet centre’s underground car park in Fyshwick at about 12:35 pm on Tuesday (11 October).
The pair were arrested and police allegedly had to use a conducted energy weapon to take the man into custody.
Kaylah Louise Maxine Cook was charged with trafficking gamma-hydroxybutyrate (GHB) when she appeared before the ACT Magistrates Court the next day (12 October).
The 28-year-old’s lawyer, James McGuire of Tu’ulakitau McGuire, said she would plead not guilty and not make a bail application.
Chief Magistrate Lorraine Walker remanded her in custody to 23 November for a pre-hearing mention.
The 35-year-old man they arrested was charged with driving while disqualified, failing to stop for police and drug driving.
Operation Toric (Traffic or Recidivist Investigations Canberra) targets high-risk offenders on ACT roads with a focus on repeat offenders.
It has made more than 80 apprehensions so far.
