Uppers bust in Mitchell

By johnboy - 8 April 2011 9

Two men will face court this morning (Friday, April 8) on drug charges after cocaine and amphetamine were seized during consecutive raids in Canberra last night.

The raids were part of an ACT Policing drug trafficking investigation named Operation Vinaka.

About 9:00pm last night Operation Vinaka investigators stopped a vehicle in Mitchell and searched the 22-year-old male driver.

The search allegedly uncovered 15 grams of cocaine and the man was arrested. Police estimated the cocaine’s street value at $7000.

Shortly after, drug team investigators executed a search warrant on a residence in Mitchell.

The raid led to the seizure of a further 40 grams of cocaine, 15 grams of amphetamine and other pharmaceuticals, with an estimated total street value of $23,000.

A 36-year-old man residing at the property was subsequently arrested.

The 22-year-old man faces two counts of trafficking a controlled substance other than cannabis. One of the charges relates to the seizure of a quantity of cocaine from a vehicle in February.

The 36-year-old man will face one count of trafficking a controlled substance other than cannabis.

Street value of $7000? More like $4500 at most.

Maybe you just buy s*** quality coke?

Mate if you are paying $470 a gram you are getting ripped no matter how you spin it

Way to take a very facetious comment seriously.

I’m actually happy that the police seem to be pretty clueless when it comes to the price of drugs. I’d be more worried if they were quoting accurate numbers.
