Two people caught with illicit drugs in Great Western road stop

Stawell Police have caught two people in possession of illegal substances at a morning drug stop in Great Western. A 34-year-old male from Coburg and a 33-year-old female from Research were processed roadside by way of a drug diversion after they were apprehended by police on Tuesday morning. Police intercepted the vehicle at around 10am on Tuesday 28 September, as it drove through Great Western. READ MORE: Police members conducted a search of the vehicle under the Drugs, Poisons and Controlled Substances Act. As a result of the search, a quantity of ‘magic mushrooms’ was located (an illicit hallucinogen). OTHER NEWS: After further searching, a quantity of pills were also located, which police believed to be ecstasy. A drug diversion is when police choose to issue cautions to individuals who are caught with a small amount of an illegal drug, instead of charging them with a criminal offence and taking the matter to Court. If a person is charged with a drug offence and the police consent, the matter may be referred to one of the court drug diversion programs in Victoria.
