A Nickol Bay Hospi­tal doc­tor al­legedly ex­tracted $25,000 worth of metham­phetamine dur­ing an in­ter­nal search of a 51-year-old woman.

West Pil­bara De­tec­tives in­ter­cepted two women on Tues­day last week at the Kar­ratha Air­port who were fly­ing in from Perth and sus­pected of con­vey­ing drugs.

De­tec­tive Se­nior Sergeant Jon Mun­day said they did not find any drugs in their ini­tial searches.

The women were taken to the hospi­tal, where Det. Sen. Sgt Mun­day said an in­ter­nal search al­legedly un­cov­ered 35g of meth from the 51-year-old from Wat­tle Grove. She was charged with pos­sess­ing the drug with in­tent to sell and sup­ply. A 37-year-old Nickol woman was charged with pos­sess­ing 55g of MDMA, con­spir­acy to com­mit an in­dictable of­fence, and a drugs charge from a few months ago.

The women ap­peared in Kar­ratha Mag­is­trate’s Court last week and were re­manded in cus­tody.

The 51-year-old is due to ap­pear again Fe­bru­ary 2, while the 37year-old will ap­pear De­cem­ber 23.
