Chinese pair charged over alleged drug and cash find
TWO Chinese nationals discovered with an indictable amount of amphetamines and more than $290,000 in cash in their car will front court again on October 13.
Ping Fai Ho, 29, and Wai Shun Lam, 27, faced Grafton Local Court on Monday charged with supplying a prohibited drug (amphetamines), knowingly dealing with the proceeds of crime and possession of a prohibited drug.
Both men gave Melbourne addresses. Court proceedings were delayed to allow an interpreter to help the two accused over an audio visual link to the courtroom.
The two men were charged after police stopped their car on the Pacific Hwy at Glenugie on Saturday at 9.16pm. It is alleged they found the drugs and cash in the car.
Police said they detected the men's Toyota Camry driving at 158kmh in a 100kmh zone.
