A 36-year-old Geraldton man has been charged after Meekatharra police allegedly seized 100 individually wrapped ‘foils’ of cannabis along with a further 16 grams of the drug during a targeted traffic stop.

Police stopped the man on Great Northern Highway just south of Meekatharra shortly before 10.30pm on Thursday after a tip-off from a member of the public.

He was charged with possession of a prohibited drug with intent to sell and supply and will face Meekatharra Magistrate’s Court at a later date.

Officer-in-charge at Meekatharra Police Station, Senior Sergeant David Hornsby, said it was a reasonably big seizure for a small town.

“It’s not huge, but it’s enough,” he said.
