A court appearance for a 64-year-old man and a 58-year-old woman is expected in due course, after they were arrested by police officers on mobile patrol for drug offences.

Police say the arrest was made around 1:40am on Monday (Sept 12).

A spokesman said the officers “had cause to stop a car in the Tribe Road Number 2 Warwick area, in the vicinity of Ord Road”.

“The officers saw two occupants in the vehicle and based on their observations, searched them under the Misuse of Drugs Act.

“As a result, a quantity of suspected controlled drug, described as a white rock like substance and a quantity of cash, were seized,” he said.

“Both occupants, a 64-year-old local man and a 58-year-old local woman, were then arrested in connection with this matter and later released on police bail, pending further inquiries.

“A court appearance is anticipated in due course.”
