Woman, 18, charged with alleged drug supply at Aberdare

An 18-year-old woman was charged with alleged drug supply after police searched an Aberdare home on Wednesday morning.

Just after 5.30am Wednesday, officers from Hunter Valley Police District attended a home on Greta Street, where they stopped four people riding unregistered trail bikes.

One of the four people fled on a trail bike and could not be located again. Inquiries are continuing.

Officers allegedly located drugs, resealable bags and cash in a woman’s backpack.

An 18-year-old woman, and two men, aged 24 and 27, were arrested and taken to Cessnock Police Station.

During a search of the home, power tools, a cooktop, three motorbikes, and a ride-on mower, believed to be stolen, were located.

The 18-year-old woman was charged with five counts of possessing a prohibited drug, two counts of supplying a prohibited drug and one count of dealing with proceeds of crime.

She was granted conditional bail to appear at Cessnock Local Court on Wednesday, June 27.

The men were released pending further inquiries.
