Random stop leads to drug charge

A RANDOM mobile patrol of Gympie by police netted a clip seal bag with marijuana in the early hours yesterday.

Police were patrolling near Oak St about 12.30am when they stopped a green Ford Fairlane for a licence and registration check.

A 40-year-old man, a passenger in the car, was charged with possessing a dangerous drug.

"Gympie police are continuing to perform high visibility patrols around the Gympie area and doing random intercepts of vehicles," Gympie officer-in-charge Snr Sgt Graeme Reeves said.

"It shows that RBT is an effective tool not only in reducing the drink-driving rate but in detecting criminal offences. Criminals also drive motor vehicles."
