Police find allegedly stolen watches, phones, cash during traffic stop at Mount Pleasant

Two people have been arrested at Mount Pleasant after police conducting a routine traffic stop allegedly found weapons and stolen goods.

Two Hermes watches, a Cartier watch, two smartphones and more than $2000 in cash were among the items officers allegedly recovered from the car, a black Holden sedan they had stopped on Cricks Mill Road around 8.20pm on Saturday.

Watches of the type seized typically retail for at least $2000, and often several or many times more than that.

They also reportedly found two knuckle-dusters, a flick knife and a small amount of cannabis.

Police arrested the car's driver, a 49-year-old man, and a 49-year-old female passenger, both of Gawler East.

They were charged with offences including unlawful possession of goods, possession of prohibited weapons and, in the man's case, driving while disqualified.

They will appear at Tanunda Magistrates' Court on July 9.
