Police have charged an Albany man who allegedly attempted to import hundreds of thousands of dollars worth of methylamphetamine from Mexico.
The 24 year old was charged after a package containing about 56 grams of the drug was intercepted.
He has been charged with attempting to possess methylamphetamine with intent to sell or supply.
“Uncommon in the quantities that came in and the location,” Detective Senior Sergeant Tom Doyle said.
“A lot of the time it might come a little bit closer to Australia. Unfortunately for this person the parcel was intercepted and it will be alleged that person attempted to source that with intent to sell or supply those drugs within Albany.”
In an unrelated matter, a man has been charged after nearly seven grams of methylamphetamine and a quantity of cannabis were allegedly found in his underwear, after a traffic stop.
Detective Senior Sergeant Doyle says the man has been charged with possessing methylamphetamine with intent to sell or supply and a range of other offences.
“The vehicle passed a police vehicle at high speed. The vehicle was stopped, suspicions were aroused in relation to the people in the vehicle,” he said.
“As a result, a passenger was spoken to, he was asked to submit to a search of his person and the vehicle. He was arrested for hindering police.”
