POLICE are investigating a suspicious package found during a vehicle search at a booze bus stop in Craigie this afternoon.

Officers allege a 25-year-old Woodvale man returned a positive test for drugs about 2.20pm on Hepburn Avenue near Karuah Way.

As a result, police searched the vehicle he was driving and discovered what a spokesman termed an “item of interest”.

Police have closed Hepburn Avenue in both directions from Kingsley Drive to Allenswood Road while they deal with the matter.
