MORE than 100kg of cannabis dumped in a creek near Warrnambool was past its best before date, according to police. The 71 packages discovered in Mount Emu Creek were found over two days from October 26 after packages were first discovered by a local farmer. In an initial search of the creek police found 51 bags of the drug, before an anonymous tip a day later lead them to 18 more packages dumped nearby.
Valued at over $700,000, had it still been in a viable condition, the major haul would put the health of anyone attempting to use it in jeopardy and was no longer saleable. It is believed to have been dumped between October 23 and October 26 by a person driving across the Warrymea Road Bridge in nearby Framlingham.
Police from Warrnambool’s Divisional Tasking Unit and Crime Investigation Unit are receiving support from the Drug Task Force with the drugs wrapped in a seemingly professional way. Det Sen Sgt Mark Canavan, manager of the region’s crime investigations, said the drugs were sheathed in tight, clear plastic and would have likely required the use of a commercial machine.
