Tips led to drug arrest
The alleged discovery of more than 1kg of cannabis in a suitcase led to the arrest of a man in Karratha last week.
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.
