Drug bust at Rockleigh near Murray Bridge on March 21

Two men and a woman from Rockleigh will face court after detectives searched their rural property in relation to drug trafficking earlier today.

Police alleged a 27-year-old man from Rockleigh had been using the internet to sell methamphetamine around the country.

He was charged with trafficking a commercial quantity of a controlled drug, possessing a class H firearm and possessing an unregistered firearm without a licence.

Detectives from the Serious Organised Crime Branch and Murray Bridge CIB along with uniformed members, searched the rural property just before 8.30am on Tuesday, March 21.

The arrested man has been bailed to appear in the Murray Bridge Magistrates Court on May 3.

Police also alleged that a replica pistol was found during the search along with 15 cannabis plants being grown hydroponically along evidence of cannabis oil production.

A 60-year-old man and a 56-year-old woman, also from Rockleigh, were reported for producing cannabis and will be summonsed to appear in court at a later date.

Detective Superintendent Craig Patterson, Officer In Charge, Serious Organised Crime Branch said the trafficking of a controlled drug such as methamphetamine, is illegal as it not only puts users of the illicit drugs at risk but causes significant harm to families and the general community.
