Al­leged sup­plier charged

Stanthorpe Border Post - - NEWS -

A STANTHORPE man has been charged with mul­ti­ple of­fences in re­la­tion to sup­ply of mar­i­juana.

Po­lice ex­e­cuted a search war­rant on the 30-year-old’s home on Jan­uary 2 where they al­legedly seized cash, 2g of ice, a quan­tity of mar­i­juana and doc­u­ments in re­la­tion to the sup­ply of drugs.

As a re­sult he was charged with 13 counts of sup­ply­ing a dan­ger­ous drug, five counts of pos­ses­sion of a dan­ger­ous drug or uten­sil and other mis­cel­la­neous drug of­fences.

Stanthorpe po­lice Act­ing Se­nior Sergeant Shane Glee­son said these charges were a re­sult of in­for­ma­tion passed on through the com­mu­nity.

“Po­lice are tak­ing a very proac­tive ap­proach in deal­ing with these mat­ters,” he said. “Even peo­ple who don’t have any­thing to do with drugs are af­fected by drugs to some de­gree in terms of whether it im­pacts other peo­ple in the com­mu­nity or other road users.”

The man has been given a no­tice to ap­pear in court but no date has been set.
