After stopping a Holden Commodore for a RBT on John Street, Coonabarabran, police observed the passenger of the vehicle behaving in a suspicious manner. Police spoke to the passenger – a 43-year-old interstate truck driver who was being driven to his truck on the Newell Highway – before searching his bag where they found five grams of a white powder (believed to be cocaine), a pipe, rolled up paper and straws. The 43-year-old, from Tamworth, was arrested by police and will be charged pending the outcome of tests to determine the nature of the white powder.
