Stanthorpe man faces drug trafficking charge

AN ONGOING investigation between Stanthorpe Police and Australian Border Force has led to the arrest of a 30-year-old man from Stanthorpe.

Police allege the man had been trafficking ice from overseas markets into the community between March 19 and June 26 this year.

Police executed a search warrant at Plant St at 11am Tuesday where they seized a substantial number of tablets and capsules, as well as computers and mobile phones.

Stanthorpe Senior Sergeant Gerard Brady said the investigation saw local police liaising with Australian Border Force.

"If offenders attempt to import drugs into Australia through our borders ultimately they are going to be caught,” Sen-Sgt Brady said.

"There's been a number of locals within the Stanthorpe community charged with supply and trafficking, particularly ice.

"Stanthorpe Police will continue to target these offenders who choose to pedal devastating drugs in our community.”

The man was charged with one count of trafficking a dangerous drug and will front Stanthorpe Magistrates Court on September 19.
