A search warrant was executed at our client’s and the co-accused’s residence. Police allegedly located cocaine in a box at the co-accused’s residence. The co-accused told the police that our client had given him the box and he had no knowledge of what was inside.

Located under our client’s bed was allegedly thousands of dollars in cash in a box, which police alleged this money to be proceeds of drug supply. Police also allegedly located the drug cocaine and various packaging, scales, and rubber bands which the police claim are consistent with drug supply activities.
