Police sniffer dogs have found a commercial quantity of drugs stashed in luggage on a northbound bus in Alice Springs overnight.
Police were checking the Stuart Highway bus from Adelaide when sniffer dogs found an estimated $150,000 worth of drugs in a 24-year-old man’s swag.
It is alleged that more than 2.5 kilograms of cannabis and 45 ecstasy tablets were found.
Duty Superintendent Bob Rennie at Alice Springs says “the man was driving his own car from Adelaide and broke down near Coober Pedy. He left his car in Coober Pedy and jumped on the bus to come to Alice.”
Police arrested the man and charged him with offences related to possessing a supply of a commercial quantity of cannabis and a trafficable quantity of MDMA (Methylenedioxymethamphetamine)
