Kingsley man charged after strip search uncovers drugs

A KINGSLEY man was allegedly hiding methamphetamine in his underpants when he was strip searched after a police stop in Quinns Rocks.

Officers stopped a vehicle on Quinns Road about 2am on May 13.

They accused the 35-year-old driver of possessing 1g of methamphetamine after they conducted a roadside drug test on a clip seal bag of crystals.

They further alleged he was in possession of a syringe containing a substance believed to be steroids.

Senior Sergeant Stuart Fairlie said officers took him to Joondalup police station where he was strip searched.

“They allegedly found a further bag of meth hidden in his crotch,” he said.

Investigators charged the man with drug possession with intent to sell or supply and driving without a licence.

He is due to appear in Joondalup Magistrates Court on June 9.
