A GRASS fire burning at the intersection of Newcastle Street and Hindmarsh Drive in Fyshwick has been extinguished. ACT Fire and Rescue and the ACT Rural Fire Service responded to the emergency with about 400 […]
THE amount of ice found in an Isabella Plains house yesterday (December 11) could have been sold to more than 1000 people.
After finding about 130 grams of crystal methamphetamine and more than $20,000, which is believed to be the proceeds from selling ice, police arrested a 51-year-old man.
Detective station sergeant Harry Hains says 130 grams of methamphetamine equates to 1300 deals.
“Sold at about $40 for a deal this equates to $52,000 of criminal profit,” he says.
“Criminals who sell illicit drugs like methamphetamine trade on the misery of others for their own financial benefit.
“Ice is an evil drug and costs the Australian community billions of dollars per year. I can guarantee you the dealers aren’t paying taxes to help fix their damage.”
The man will appear in the ACT Magistrates Court today (December 12).
Anyone with information regarding illegal drugs should contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333000, or via the Crime Stoppers ACT website.
