Arrests made in drug haul
TERRITORY police have seized as much as $850,000 worth of amphetamines in Katherine.
Detective Senior Sergeant Clint Sims from the Northern Investigation Section said a vehicle was apprehended on Giles St at about 4pm Thursday.
He alleged police discovered 884.6g of an amphetamine- type substance under the back seat of the vehicle.
A man, 39, and a woman, 37, were taken into custody and charged with supplying a commercial quantity of amphetamine.
They were due to appear in court yesterday.
Detective Senior Sergeant Sims said the street value of the schedule II drug is estimated to be between $750,000 and $850,000.
‘‘ Police are extremely happy that these drugs have been seized, illegally produced amphetamine substances can cause serious harm, both psychological and physical addiction, hallucinations and bizarre, aggressive and violent behaviour,’’ he said.
‘‘ We will continue to target the people dealing in these substances in the interest of harm minimisation and keeping people safe.’’
