Far North driver charged over hiding meth between legs


A Manoora driver accused of hiding drugs between his legs and carrying a knife and ammunition is facing a raft of serious charges.

Police say the 28-year-old was pulled over during a routine vehicle inspection at Parramatta Park, around lunchtime yesterday.

Officers allegedly uncovered ammunition in a bag as well as a knife. They say they then found another bag containing a quantity of methamphetamine stored between his legs.

Cash, a set of scales and other restricted drugs were also confiscated.

The man is due to appear in Cairns Magistrates Court next month.

He has been charged with unlawful possession of explosives, unlawful possession of a weapon, possession of dangerous drugs, possession of drug utensils, possession of property suspected of being used in the commission of an offence and possession of a restricted drug.
