Cocaine and meth are among a quantity of drugs seized from a vehicle during a search on Albany Highway on New Year’s Eve.

Police will allege they found a quantity of cocaine, methamphetamine, MDMA tablets, ecstasy, cash and smoking implements after searching a vehicle about 10km south of Arthur River.

Wagin sergeant Mick Williams said police were monitoring traffic when a unregistered vehicle caught their attention.

“Police spoke with the driver and questioned him if there was anything illicit in the vehicle, he has told police he had a small amount of cannabis and police searched the vehicle where they found the large quantity of drugs,” he said.

“We are still in the process of weighing the drugs but over a pound of cannabis was found as well as cannabis seeds and oil along with a quantity of cocaine, methamphetamine, MDMA tablets and power, ecstasy, cash and smoking implements.”

Sgt. Williams said inquiries were still underway but the 20-year-old is facing several drug charges.

“He has been charged with intent to sell and supply and possession,” he said.

“It’s disappointing to see, the alleged activity here was selling and supplying in Albany for New Year’s Eve, police have been patrolling and proactive to stop this sort of thing happening, to stop it hitting the streets and stop the dealing in Albany.”
