West Pil­bara De­tec­tives ar­rested the 47-year-old man about 8.30am last Wed­nes­day dur­ing a ve­hi­cle stop on Bay­ley Av­enue, near Kar­ratha Air­port, based on in­for­ma­tion from the pub­lic.

Po­lice al­legedly found the cannabis dur­ing a sub­se­quent search of a Kar­ratha ac­com­mo­da­tion site.

The man ap­peared be­fore Kar­ratha Mag­is­trate’s Court the same day and was re­manded in cus­tody un­til June 12.
