Police raid Wallan home for drugs

A DRUG bust in Wallan has led police to charge three people with possession of methylamphetamine and one person with drug trafficking, possession of prohibited weapons and other related offences.

“Information was provided to us from members of the public,” Sgt Derrett said.

“People were concerned about cars turning up to the address. Our guys conducted some surveillance, obtained relevant information and executed the warrant first thing on Thursday morning.

“Four people were caught off guard and an extensive search of the house was conducted. Police seized methylamphetamine, GHB and prohibited weapons.”

The main offender was charged with trafficking a drug of dependence, bailed and due to face Seymour Magistrate’s Court on April 14.
