Two men have been arrested and charged with drug offences after a joint sting operation by Northern Territory and West Australian police. Northern Territory Police say they seized 5.6 kilograms of cannabis in a package on a bus near Alice Springs on December 16. The package was discovered by a drug sniffer dog as part of an ongoing federally funded operation targeting the trafficking of drugs and alcohol into Aboriginal communities.
The cannabis had been sent from Victoria and consigned to Western Australia via Alice Springs. Territory police resealed the package and alerted the Organised Crime Squad in WA. West Australian detectives arrested a 38-year-old man and a 34-year-old man when they tried to claim the package on December 23. NT Police Superintendent Travis Wurst says the sting was a good result. “It proves that the reach of police in the fight against illicit drugs easily transcends state and territory borders,” he said.
