Officer-in-charge Senior Sergeant Ray Thompson said patrolling officers approached the man, who they thought was acting suspiciously, outside Albany Highway McDonald’s in the morning on Saturday, September 5, but he allegedly ran away.
Police will allege the 47-year-old Maddington man had nearly 16g of a substance they believed was methamphetamine.
He was charged with possessing a prohibited drug with intent to sell or supply.
He appeared at Armadale Magistrates Court on September 6 and again on September 9.
He was remanded in custody, to appear again today.
