Two Karratha men charged in 137g meth seizure
West Pilbara Detectives believe they have prevented 137g of methamphetamine from reaching northern WA towns after making a “significant” seizure during a traffic stop yesterday.
As part of a regional policing operation, Geraldton police allegedly found the drugs on Wednesday in a search of a vehicle and trailer driving about 60km south of Carnarvon.
Pilbara District Police acting Inspector Carlos Correia said the quantity seized yesterday morning was “very significant” for the area and it had an estimated $100,000 street value.
Police believe the drugs were intended for North West towns including both Carnarvon and Karratha.
Two Karratha men, aged 35 and 39, have been arrested over the find, on charges of possessing a prohibited drug with intent to sell or supply.
They were due to face Carnarvon Magistrates Court today.
Acting Insp. Correia said police were receiving good information from the community about suspected methamphetamine cases.
“The fact is a lot of the community are fed up with it and we have a lot more information coming in from them,” he said.
