A man and a woman are due to appear in court after they were intercepted by police at Launceston Airport and charged with multiple offenses.

The pair from Newnham were stopped by Tasmanian police after the man was identified by a drug detection dog, as members of the Northern Drug Investigation Services and Police Dog Handling Unit conducted routine screening of passengers arriving from a Melbourne flight.

The 27-year-old man and a 35-year-old woman were taken into custody and detained by police as further investigations continued.

The man was found to be carrying 80 grams of methamphetamine and was later charged with trafficking a controlled substance and other minor offences, while the woman was charged with minor drug offences and unlawful possession of property and ammunition.

Tasmania Police say the drugs seized have an estimated street value of $80,000.

Detective Inspector Craig Fox from Northern CIB said,

“Police remain committed to screening the air, sea, and mail corridors into Tasmania for illicit drugs.”

The pair were released on bail and are due to appear in the Launceston Magistrate’s Court at a later date.
