Croydon Police got more than they bargained for after a routine stop located a large amount of drugs and cash in a vehicle in Croydon last night (10 June), Victoria Police say.
Officers stopped and spoke to a group of men in a licensed premises car park on Dorset Road just before 11.30pm.
One of the men, a 29-year-old Doveton man, is alleged to have run from police and police took chase and located the man hiding in a rear yard of a private property in Lyndhurst Close.
A search of a nearby vehicle located a large quantity of drugs and cash which were seized.
The man was arrested and he has been charged with trafficking a commercial quantity of a drug of dependence (GHB) and other drug related offences.
He has been remanded and will appear at Melbourne Magistrate’s court today.
