Bust dents Valley crime
By ADRIAN MILLER
GRAFTON police are expecting a reduction in property related crime throughout the town after a 'significant' arrest on Thursday.
Police have arrested and charged a 40-year-old South Grafton woman after she was allegedly found with illegal drugs in limits over the indictable quantity.
During a police executed search warrant at the woman's house on Thursday morning, police allegedly found eight grams of amphetamines and 20 tablets of ecstasy.
Also found in the course of the search, which was conducted by police attached to the Grafton Target Action Group and Grafton detectives, were items believed to have been stolen worth $14,000.
Police also allege a number of prohibited weapons were found, as well as implements used to break into houses.
The woman was charged with two counts of supplying drugs, two counts of possession of prohibited substances and one count of goods in custody.
She was bailed and is due to appear in Grafton Local Court on Feb 20.
A spokesman for Grafton detectives said inquiries were ongoing and further arrests were possible.
"Everyone involved in the search and arrest are pretty pleased with the result and we do expect more arrests down the track," he said.
