Swan Hill Police Nab Four Drivers in One Day with Meth
Last Friday has seen the Swan Hill Police charge a procession of drivers with possession of methyl amphetamine.
In just over 10 hours starting just before midday, police pulled over and charged four different drivers with possession of quantities of methyl amphetamine in Swan Hill alone.
The first of the four was pulled over at 11:50am on Brown Street, initially in relation to a petrol drive off and evasion of police; the 27-year-old Golden Square man not only had methyl amphetamine in the vehicle, but also had other drug paraphernalia and a prohibited weapon. He also was charged with driving whilst disqualified.
Police then, at 4:20pm and 9:15pm respectively, caught two separate drivers who both were caught with methyl amphetamine and cannabis. Both the 43-year-old male from Culgoa and the 21-year-old male from Swan Hill have both been bailed to appear in court at a later date.
A 38-year-old Swan Hill male was the last of the day to be caught, with a controlled weapon also found in his vehicle at 10pm on Curlewis Street.
