Cops search man for cocaine at train station

Share Canberra's trusted news:

A DEAKIN man was found with what police believe is cocaine after he arrived at Canberra Railway Station from Sydney yesterday (April 22) morning. 

Police searched the man, a 51-year-old, at about 11.20am at the station in Kingston, where they found about 59 grams of a white powder in a clear plastic bag.

Further tests will be conducted on the substance and if it’s confirmed to be cocaine, the estimated street value of the drugs will be almost $20,000.

The man is scheduled to appear in the ACT Magistrates Court charged with trafficking in a controlled drug other than cannabis.

Information regarding the trafficking, manufacturing or dealing of illicit drugs can go to Crime Stoppers on 1800 333000 or via the Crime Stoppers ACT website.
