WHITSUNDAY Police have reported 11 separate drug offences during this week alone.
Officer in Charge of the Whitsunday Station Acting Senior Sergeant Barry Haran said most of these instances were individuals that came to police attention for other reasons.
“And when searched, small amounts of drugs are being located secreted on their person,” he said.
“The same is happening when police are intercepting vehicles. Police say that whilst drugs are not a massive problem in town there are still enough people out there that think flaunting the laws is acceptable.”
