ACT Policing seized around 21 kilograms of dried cannabis and more than $14,000 in cash following a traffic stop on Sunday (4 July).

At about 7:40 pm, police stopped a grey Ford Ranger SUV on Coulter Drive, Belconnen and executed a search warrant on the vehicle.

Cash totaling more than $14,000 and five mobile telephones were also found in the vehicle.

The 28-year-old driver of the vehicle was spoken to by police at the scene.

While the man was not charged in relation to these warrants, police believe a crime syndicate focused on the supply of cannabis and other drugs into the ACT is responsible. Investigations are ongoing.

Anyone with information about this matter or the supply of drugs in the ACT is urged to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers ACT website. Information can be provided anonymously.
