Three charged after ‘$1 million cannabis seizure’

THREE people have been charged in relation to the alleged seizure of more than 13kg of cannabis, which is believed to have entered the Territory via road train.

Organised Crime Division Detective Senior Sergeant Mark Stringer said police arrested a 42-year-old man after a Toyota Landcruiser was stopped.

“A search of the vehicle located a box allegedly containing 6.8kg of cannabis, sorted into 15 vacuum bags,” he said.

“It’s believed the man had collected the box from a transport yard in East Arm.

“Officers then carried out a search warrant on the transport yard, and located an identical box containing another 6.8kg of cannabis,” Sen Sgt Stringer alleged.

“A toolbox allegedly containing more than $40,000 cash was also located in the cabin of the truck.

“During the warrant, a 19-year-old woman — alleged to be the recipient of the second box of cannabis — attended the yard.”

Sen Sgt Stringer said the woman and a 51-year-old male were arrested.

A further search warrant at the 42-year-old man’s home address allegedly uncovered a further $28,800.

“This particular seizure has a wholesale value of $162,000 and potential street value of over $1,000,000,” Sen Sgt Stringer said.

All three were remanded in custody to appear in Darwin Local Court today.
