MYRTLEFORD’S police sergeant has called on his community to help stem drug trafficking after two people were charged last week.
Sgt Paul Evans said a car was intercepted in Prince Street at 6pm on Thursday with 56 grams of cannabis allegedly found in the vehicle.
He said the driver had travelled to Wodonga that day to try and sell it from the car park of a fast food chain.
A Myrtleford woman, 38, will be charged on summons for trafficking.
Sgt Evans said on Friday police intercepted another car leaving a Mummery Road home.
A warrant was then executed on the address and police said they found methamphetamine and cannabis ready for distribution.
A Myrtleford man, 32, was charged with trafficking and was bailed to appear at Myrtleford Magistrates’ Court at a later date.
Sgt Evans said that information from the community could lead to arrests such as these.
“We’ve got to keep working at it because it does have an impact,” he said.
“The smallest piece of information could help us fix some of the issues we’re facing.”
Sgt Evans said that just like a car crash, drug addiction had a ripple effect on families of those involved.
Anyone with information on trafficking, using or making of drugs should phone Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000. Information can be anonymous.
