Facing Court

ACT Policing yesterday (Thursday, 30 September, 2021) arrested a 29-year-old Phillip man, who was on bail, for drug and weapon offences.

Criminal Investigations officers yesterday executed a warrant at a residence in Phillip, after investigations revealed the man was living there, allegedly in breach of bail conditions granted on 27 July 2021.

About 10.20am, police entered the residence and located the man, drug paraphernalia, substances suspected of being cocaine, methamphetamine, and cannabis, weapons and ammunition.

The man will appear before the ACT Magistrates Court today (Friday, 1 October 2021) charged with possessing a drug of dependence for sale, possessing a prohibited substance, possessing a prohibited weapon, possessing ammunition, and breach of bail.

Police will oppose further bail.
