ACT Policing have seized over 100 MDMA tablets and a sum of cash after intercepting a drug deal in the city centre on Sunday morning (2 September).

In the early hours of the morning, police were conducting a mobile patrol in the city when they saw two “suspicious males” who appeared to be engaging in illicit drug activity.

A short time later, police attended Petrie Plaza and spoke to and searched the males, and found 96 suspected MDMA tablets, a quantity of cash and drug dealing paraphernalia. A further search of the immediate area revealed another 22 suspected MDMA tablets.

Both men will be summonsed to the ACT Magistrates Court at a later date.

Police are urging anyone who may have any information relating to illicit drug activity to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or via the Crime Stoppers ACT website. Information can be provided anonymously.
