Police make ice arrest in Grafton search

A SEARCH warrant in Grafton has led to the arrest of a 40-year-old man after an estimated $2700 worth of crystal methamphetamine was allegedly uncovered.

Coffs/Clarence crime manager Detective Inspector Darren Jameson said following ongoing investigations into the supply of prohibited drugs in the area, local detectives and officers attached to the Target Action Group executed the warrant on a house in Villiers St yesterday.

During the search it will be alleged 2.7g of crystal methamphetamine, or ice, was located, an amount police said equated to 27 street deals.

A 40-year-old man was arrested at the scene and has since been charged with supply and possession of a prohibited drug.

A 19-year-old female who was also at the premises was allegedly found to be in possession of a small quantity of ice.

Both are expected to appear in Grafton Local Court in the near future.

Det Insp Jameson added that despite the prevalence of poly-drugging in the region, no cannabis was found during the search.
