Search yields flu tablets and drug items: police

Police allegedly uncovered drug manufacturing items during a search of a car and home in Albany yesterday.

A man and a woman have been charged after the searches which occurred after they were stopped in a car on York Street at 12.58pm.

Police allegedly found items used to manufacture methylamphetamine in the boot of the car.

The woman was found with cold and flu tablets containing pseudophedrine – a substance police say could be linked to the manufacture of drugs.

Police also conducted a search warrant on a home linked to the pair in nearby McKail where they allegedly found other items used in the manufacture of methlyamphetamine, including what is believed to be an ammonia generator.

The 25-year-old Katanning man was charged with one count of attempting to manufacture a prohibited drug.

He was refused bail and is due to appear in Albany Magistrate’s Court today.

The 21-year-old McKail woman was charged with one count of possession of certain substances or things and was released on bail to appear in Albany Magistrate’s Court on January 30.
