Drug of­fences

Whitsunday Times - - LOCAL NEWS -

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.”
