Detectives swoop for big Stawell drug bust


Police have arrested two people and seized a large amount of drugs following a search warrant in Stawell issued last Friday.

Detectives say a 73 year old man and 23 year old woman, both from Stawell, will be charged with trafficking, possession and proceeds of crime offences.

Following the arrest of the man and woman officers subsequently searched the Fisher Street house, seizing a large amount of what is alleged to be heroin, methylamphetamine and cocaine.

 The woman was bailed whilst the man was remanded in custody.
Both will appear in the Stawell Magistrates Court on January 5th 2021.
