MDMA capsules, powder seized in major home drug bust

MORE than 400g of MDMA has been seized in a drug bust at a Tewantin home at the weekend.

Noosa police closed in on the Hilton Tce property at 3am on Sunday, April 19 after conducting surveillance on the home in relation to drug intelligence.

Noosa’s acting officer-in-charge Senior Sergeant James Driver said police detained four people as they searched the premises.

“As a result of the search police located numerous capsules containing about 328 grams of MDMA, a container containing an amount of unused capsules, a container containing about 90 grams of MDMA powder, a hand pill press, and other items associated with drug use,” Snr-Sgt Driver said.

“All property was seized by police.”

Snr-Sgt Driver said estimates show one capsule of MDMA usually contains about 0.1 grams of MDMA and costs about $20 to $25. One gram of MDMA may cost around $200.

A 23 year old Noosaville male was arrested and transported to the Maroochydore Watch house where he was charged in relation to this matter.

He released on bail and will appear at Maroochydore Magistrates Court on July 29.
