A WARRNAMBOOL man will appear in court today after police found drugs stashed in a car in Camperdown on the weekend.
Highway patrol officers discovered the 21 grams of methamphetamine (ice) after pulling the vehicle over in Manifold Street during a routine interception on Saturday evening. The 22-year-old man was interviewed and remanded in custody to appear in the magistrates court.
A 19-year-old Ascot Vale man and an 18-year-old Warrnambool woman, also travelling in the car, were also arrested and interviewed, but were released, pending further inquiries.
Meanwhile, a Melbourne man visiting Portland on a tuna fishing trip was also arrested on drug charges at the weekend.
Police charged the 49-year-old with possessing and using cannabis after he was found “off his face” and walking along the street overnight Saturday.
The man was carrying nine grams of cannabis and was taken into custody.
Police waited until he had calmed down and it was safe to interview him. He was later released on bail and will appear in court at a later date.
Portland police also arrested a man, aged in his early 20s, after he spat in an officer’s face overnight Sunday.
The Portland man has been charged with being drunk and disorderly, resisting arrest and assaulting police.
