Today’s drug seizure follows on from a search warrant conducted at a Kingston unit last week, in which detectives seized a number of packages suspected to contain methyl amphetamine (ICE).
Information from the community is vital in helping police combat the production and distribution of amphetamines. This Friday, ACT Policing and Crime Stoppers are participating in a national phone-in day, “Say Something Day”, codenamed Operation Unification.
Anyone with any information about illicit drug use and distribution in the community is urged to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, where they can speak with police anonymously.
