Woman (60) on drugs charges

Western Suburbs Weekly - - Community Classifieds -

A STASH of 20 ec­stasy tablets and 2.6g of metham­phetamine was al­legedly in the pos­ses­sion of a 60year-old Mos­man Park woman when she re­ported to Cottes­loe po­lice sta­tion on Novem­ber 24.

“She was here for an al­leged breach of her bail be­cause she was not re­port­ing to the sta­tion each week,” Sergeant Paul Gelmi said.

The woman is an al­leged metham­phetamine dealer who was dobbed in by her neigh­bours, lead­ing po­lice to raid her Hous­ing Author­ity flat in Welling­ton Street, Mos­man Park, on Oc­to­ber 31.

It was al­leged the flat con­tained 2g of metham­phetamine, smok­ing im­ple­ments and unau­tho­rised drug pre­scrip­tions.

Po­lice said there were de­vices that in­di­cated drug deal­ing, in­clud­ing small plas­tic bags, scales and $400 in cash. The woman was charged with in­tent to sell metham­phetamine and pos­ses­sion of an il­le­gal drug, and faced evic­tion by the Author­ity.

Sgt Gelmi said the woman failed to con­form to sub­se­quent bail re­stric­tions and was asked to at­tend the sta­tion, where the ad­di­tional drugs were al­legedly found in her pos­ses­sion.

She was charged with 12 more counts of in­tent to sell or sup­ply drugs. She was re­fused bail in court on Novem­ber 25 and re­manded in cus­tody to reap­pear to face all charges from the raid and the sta­tion on De­cem­ber 28.
