Drugs found in man’s car

A MAN caught driving an unregistered vehicle in Virginia, while unlicensed and under the influence of drugs, has been arrested after police located drugs in his car during a routine stop on Friday night.

Police stopped a station wagon towing a caravan on Old Port Wakefield Road at around 8.30pm, when checks revealed the caravan was unregistered.

The driver, a 47-year-old Paralowie man who was also unlicensed, submitted to a driver screening test and returned a positive result to methylamphetamine and cannabis.

Patrols searched the vehicles and located a quantity of cannabis, an ice pipe, a quantity of methylamphetamine and cash.

The man was arrested and charged with possessing a controlled drug for sale, and unlawful possession. He was also issued an expiation notice for driving unlicensed, unregistered and uninsured, before being bailed to appear in the Elizabeth Magistrates Court on May 17.
