A COLAC man is facing drug-trafficking charges after police seized amphetamines from a house in the city.
Colac Criminal Investigation Unit Detective Senior Constable Mick Palmer said uniformed officers and detectives executed a search warrant at a house in Murray Street, Colac.
“Police recovered a quantity of drugs, amphetamines, as well as a large amount of property,” Det Palmer said.
“Police arrested a 30-year-old Colac man, he’s been charged in relation to trafficking a drug of dependence,” he said.
Det Palmer said the arrest on Saturday was “a good result” for Colac police.
Police have charged the man with trafficking and possessing a drug of dependence as well as handling stolen goods.
Police have bailed the man to appear at Colac Magistrate’s Court in August.
Det Palmer said police found property they believe was stolen from in and around Colac.
“At this stage police need to identify owners for the property that has been seized,” he said.
“Items such as tool boxes and tool sets have been recovered.
“Anyone having their tools or tool box stolen in recent times are requested to contact Colac police.”
Det Palmer said people could view the items at Colac Police Station during business hours, or contact the station’s property officer Gary Mewha.
The Colac Herald reported the theft of tools from Barwon Downs, Larpent and Colac last month.
Police have previously said thieves stole power tools and a Kingchrome tool set from a Larpent shed, garden tools from a Wilson Street shed in Colac and a grinder, chainsaw sharpener and a plastic tool box from a Barwon Water shed at Barwon Downs.
Thieves took about $1000 worth of items in the Larpent incident, while thieves stole about $250 of property from Wilson Street.
