Roadside check nets drugs, illegal driver in Vic West

A standard road check by Victoria police officers early this morning netted heroin and cocaine from a man who was already banned from driving.

Around 1:45 a.m., VicPD officers pulled over a white Jeep at Esquimalt and Harbour roads. Officers spotted a crack pipe in the car, and in a subsequent search found heroin and both powder and crack cocaine.

The driver already had an indefinite license prohibition. He was served with an immediate roadside prohibition and the vehicle was impounded.
