A three day operation in Daly River resulted in the seizure of 443 grams of cannabis and 80 litres of alcohol by Police.
Police from Daly River and Adelaide River, in conjunction with the Dog Operations Unit and the Remote Community Drug Desk, stopped and searched vehicles in the ongoing operation to disrupt the supply of drugs and alcohol in remote communities.
Superintendent Daniel Bacon said a 39-year-old female has been arrested for allegedly possessing and unlawfully suppling cannabis and two males have been summonsed for alcohol related offences.
“Police will continue to target the individuals who profit from this kind of offending. These substances bring nothing but misery to people in remote communities and we are determined to disrupt this supply wherever and whenever we can,” Superintendent Bacon said.
“Police conducted safety checks on all vehicles, resulting in nine infringement notices and two vehicles being defected. Police also breath tested 53 drivers, all of which were negative.
“Northern Territory Police want the people who transport illegal substances into remote communities for profit to know that, we are out there and you will get caught.”
