Two men will face court on April 12 over drugs charges following a traffic stop at Tailem Bend on Saturday.
About 6pm on Saturday 1 April, officers from the Serious and Organised Crime Branch stopped a vehicle on the Princes Highway as part of an ongoing investigation.
Police conducted a search of the vehicle and located approximately 10 kilograms of methamphetamine and a small amount of cocaine.
The occupants of the car, a 24-year-old man from Queenstown and a 21-year-old man from Peterhead, were subsequently arrested and charged with trafficking a large commercial quantity of controlled drugs.
Both men were refused bail and appeared in the Murray Bridge Magistrates Court on Monday, where they were remanded in custody to appear in the same court on 12 April.
“This seizure of 10 kilograms of methamphetamine not only removes these harmful drugs from the street but more importantly disrupts, disables and dismantles the organised crime syndicates involved”, said Detective Acting Superintendent Denise Gray, Acting Officer in Charge Serious and Organised Crime Branch.
“Drug syndicates are motivated by greed and have no care for the harm they cause to our communities”.
Anyone with information on the sale, supply, manufacture and distribution on illicit drugs is urged to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000 or online at https://crimestopperssa.com.au/.
