Frenchman on drug charges
POLICE arrested a 22-year-old French national for the alleged supply and possession of a dangerous drug.
Police attended the Old Warwick Rd, Glen Niven, address in relation to another matter where drugs were allegedly observed in clear view. As a result, police seized 131g of marijuana, a large amount of cash and a mobile phone.
Acting Senior Sergeant Alan Baker said it was common to see backpackers involved with drugs, however not many were involved with supply.
The man was released on bail and is due to appear in Stanthorpe Magistrates Court on January 23.
