Man on bail after large drug find

A MAN has been granted bail after police allegedly found large amounts of methamphetamines in a Frenchville home.

Police yesterday did not object to Benjamin Francis Carey’s release after he spent a night in custody.

Carey, 26, was charged after police raided a home in Coome Street at 6.20am on Thursday.

CIB Detective Sergeant Steve Paskin said the arrest was part of ongoing police investigations.

“Police located a large quantity of drugs believed to be methamphetamines, as well as firearms and other minor drug objects,” he said.

Carey was charged with two counts of unlawful possession of a weapon and one count each of possessing a dangerous drug and possession of drug property.

A 19-year-old woman was also charged with two counts of possessing a dangerous drug and one count of possessing utensils.

She is due to appear in the Rockhampton Magistrates Court on December 7. Police said Carey and the woman were the only occupants of the home.

In a separate bid to target drug related crime, the Queensland Police Service’s Dial in a Druggie campaign finished yesterday.

It ran from November 16 and encouraged community members to report any drug related crimes in their area.
