Drug charges over NSW 20kg cannabis hauls


Multiple drivers who allegedly had more than 20kg of cannabis in their cars have been caught by NSW police in less than two weeks.

Two men, aged 60 and 43, were arrested on Thursday after police found 20kg of cannabis in the back of a white van at Bankstown.

The men were charged with drug offences and were expected to face Bankstown Local Court on Friday.

In a separate incident on February 15, a Queensland woman was arrested by Strike Force Raptor officers from the Gang Squad after a small amount of cannabis was found in her handbag.

Further searches uncovered 26.2kg of the drug in her car's boot, police said.

She is expected to face court in April, charged with supplying a commercial quantity of drugs.
