ACT Policing has arrested and charged a 24-year-old man following the execution of a Drugs of Dependence Act search warrant in Belconnen yesterday (Thursday, May 19).

Members of the ACT Criminal Investigations Drugs and Organised Crime Team (DOCT) with assistance from National Canine Operations executed the search warrant at a residence in Belconnen.

During the search of the premises police seized a quantity of Cocaine, Methylamphetamine and Cannabis along with scales and equipment associated with drug trafficking. A large sum of cash was also seized.

A second warrant was executed on a premises in Gungahlin, where another large sum of cash was seized.

The 24-year-old man was arrested and charged with trafficking in a controlled drug other than cannabis. He will appear before the ACT Magistrates Court this morning (Friday, 20 May) where police will oppose bail.

Crime Stoppers and ACT Policing recently launched a ‘Dob in a Dealer’ campaign seeking information about illicit drugs activity in the ACT. The campaign aims to reduce and disrupt illicit drug supply in the region.

Anyone with any information about illicit drug use and distribution in the community is urged to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or via act.crimestoppers.com.au. Information can be provided anonymously.

Police remind people they should not report crime information via Facebook and Twitter pages.
