ACT Policing has arrested a 31-year-old man and 42-year-old woman, after executing a search warrant on a residence in Palmerston early yesterday morning (Friday, 22 November).

Gungahlin patrol members executed the Drugs of Dependence Act search warrant on the home around 4.45am locating a quantity of drugs suspected to be heroin.

A quantity of drug paraphernalia was also located, along with several property items suspected to be stolen.

The man and woman were conveyed to the ACT Watch House where each was charged with drug trafficking and possession. They will face the ACT Magistrates Court this morning (Saturday, 23 November).

ACT Policing is currently running a three-month campaign targeting illicit drugs in the community. Police urge anyone with information on the manufacturing or dealing of illicit drugs to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or via act.crimestoppers.com.au. Rewards of up to $1000 may apply, reports can be provided anonymously.

I don’t know much about smack, but that seems like an awful lot of gear in those brown paper bags.

And I’m glad that the rozzers are doings so well with the guns and drugs campaign, but why only do it for three months? It seems to be working, so why not just keep doing whatever they’re forever?

And what happens at the end of three months? They stop worrying about drug dealers and start targeting jaywalkers?

Not sure myself but perhaps this three months they are focusing on infiltrating the drug industry so that it will be easier to make such arrests in future? Then again, it could be a funding thing, a 3 month increase in funding allowing to run extra operations.

Dunno if either of these are correct, just taking a stab in the dark
