Three charged after bust
A CANNABIS bust in the Townsville CBD has netted $ 50,000 worth of marijuana believed to be bound for the streets. The Northern Region drug squad intercepted a Toyota Landcruiser last Tuesday in Flinders St West as a result of information from an ongoing investigation. Police claim a search found 4.8kg of cannabis. A quantity of methamphetamine and cash was also found in the car. Three men in the vehicle, aged 20, 22 and 23, all from Richmond, have been charged with a number of drug offences. They have been bailed to appear in the Townsville Magistrates Court on March 29.
