Biggenden man arrested in marijuana sting

TWO North Burnett men have been charged in unrelated drug offences on February 2.

A 39-year-old Biggenden man was arrested after police found marijuana and drug utensils at an Edward St property.

Police carried out a search warrant at 1.25pm and spoke with the man before the arrest was made.

He will appear in Maryborough Magistrates Court on March 3, charged with possession of a dangerous drug and drug utensils.

Later that afternoon, police from Mundubbera Station charged a 25-year-old Eidsvold man with possession of property used in connection with a drug offence.

"Police allegedly intercepted the man at about 3.40pm at Strathdee St for the purpose of a random breath test,” a QPS spokesperson said.

As a result of the breath test and licence checks it was revealed that the driver did not have a current licence.

A search of the vehicle also located drug utensils.

The man was issued with a notice to appear for the drug and traffic offences, and is due to appear in Gayndah Magistrates Court on March 15.
