Clarkson Police Acting Senior Sergeant Rebecca Mayger said officers attended a two-vehicle crash on Burns Beach Road near Connolly Drive in Currambine about 2.30pm on July 17 and allegedly found drugs during a search of one of the vehicles.

‘In the vehicle were six clipsal bags containing cannabis and about one ounce of cannabis in a separate bag,’ she said.

They charged him with possession of prohibited drugs with intent to sell or supply, possession of drugs and of drug paraphernalia, and was remanded in custody following his first court appearance.
