Drugs found in car after ac­ci­dent

Isis Town and Country - - Front Page -

CHILDERS po­lice at­tended a sin­gle ve­hi­cle roll-over shortly be­fore mid­night on October 19.

Con­sta­ble Joshua Roberts at­tended the scene and later said the in­ci­dent oc­curred on the Isis Hwy at Golden Fleece.

“Whilst con­duct­ing in­ves­ti­ga­tions into the crash, po­lice lo­cated a quan­tity of cannabis in­side a cooler bag, and in the pos­ses­sion of a 26-year old Dal­larnil man who was the pas­sen­ger in the crash,” Const Roberts said.

The ap­prox­i­mate weight of the cannabis was 536g, which was seized by the po­lice.

A male was is­sued with a no­tice to ap­pear be­fore the court for pos­ses­sion of a dan­ger­ous drug.

Const Roberts said the two peo­ple were taken to Bund­aberg hospi­tal for ob­ser­va­tions and were re­leased later that night.

In­ves­ti­ga­tions into the sin­gle ve­hi­cle crash are con­tin­u­ing.

The Fatal Five Road Safety cam­paign in­tro­duced by the Queens­land po­lice say: Speed­ing, drink and drug driv­ing, fail­ure to wear a seat­belt and driv­ing while fa­tigued make up the deadly five driver be­hav­iours.

Too many Queens­land drivers are be­ing dis­tracted whilst be­hind the wheel by mo­bile phones, sound sys­tems, DVD play­ers and satellite nav­i­ga­tion, just to name a few.

Think twice be­fore get­ting be­hind the wheel, the cam­paign urges.
