ACT Policing has arrested a 32-year-old man after executing a search warrant in Wanniassa yesterday morning (Thursday, 14 January).

About 9am, members from the Criminal Investigations Crime Targeting Team searched the residence and seized a number of items. These included trafficable quantities of suspected Methylamphetamine (ice), Cocaine, MDMA, Ecstasy, and paraphernalia to prepare its sale and supply.

Also seized were two .22 calibre rifles, including one with a shortened barrel and stock, ammunition and $44 000 in Australian currency. A large quantity of suspected anabolic steroids was also seized.

The alleged offender was present at the time and following the search warrant, was arrested and conveyed to the City Watch House where he was charged.

The man will appear in the ACT Magistrates Court this morning (Friday, 15 January) facing charges of drug trafficking, dealing in proceeds of crime, and firearm related offences.

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