Drug charges, Cairns City


A 36-year-old Cedar Vale (Logan) woman is facing drug charges following a traffic intercept early Friday morning.

Far North District Tactical Crime Squad officers were patrolling the CBD area just before 1:00am when they intercepted a sedan near the intersection of Spence and McLeod Streets.

The officers spoke with the driver as well as her male passenger. Inquiries allegedly revealed the vehicle was unregistered.

A search of the vehicle allegedly located a small quantity of methylamphetamine, a tablet of prescription medication, a sum of cash, several drug utensils and drug related paraphernalia.

The items were seized, and the woman was charged with four drug-related offences as well as two counts of receiving tainted property and one count of driving an unregistered vehicle.

She is scheduled to appear in the Cairns Magistrates Court later Friday morning.
