Police raise concerns over 'poly-drugging'
POLICE have highlighted their concerns over poly-drugging following an arrest in South Grafton.
About 10.30pm on Friday night, officers from the local target action squad allegedly found seven "street deals" of a substance believed to be crystal methamphetamine, and two bags of cannabis in the handbag of a South Grafton woman.
The find came during a search of the 43-year-old at a service station on Bent St in South Grafton.
She has now been charged with possession, and will appear in Grafton Local Court on December 5.
Coffs/Clarence crime manager Detective Inspector Darren Jameson said the arrest showed a close association continued between cannabis and crystal meth.
"(These drugs) continue their close association as each, a dangerous drug and risk to community safety, show that poly-drugging is a concern locally," he said.
"Cannabis is playing a significant issue within the command and... with a lot of drug arrests we are still seeing a mixture of drugs, known as poly-drugging."
Anyone with information on illicit drug-related incidents is asked to phone Grafton police on 6642 0222, or CrimeStoppers on 1800 333 000.
