Man accused of throwing meth out car window during police pursuit

A man, with his toddler in the backseat, has allegedly thrown methylamphetamine from his car while leading police on a pursuit in NSW overnight.

Officers stopped the vehicle on High Street in Wauchope for a random breath test about 5.25pm yesterday.

The 28-year-old man was unable to produce a licence and a quick check revealed he was disqualified from driving until December 2024.

When officers told the man they were going to search his car, he allegedly accelerated from the scene and took them on a 6km pursuit.

During the chase, police allege the driver threw white powder out the window twice before stopping in Rosewood where he was arrested.

Police later found white crystals, believed to be methylamphetamine, in the vehicle as well as cocaine and $1690 cash.

The man has since been charged with a string of offences including Police pursuit, Drive while disqualified, Supply prohibited drug, Wilfully obstruct officer in execution of duty and Goods in personal custody suspected being stolen.

He was refused bail to appear in court today, while his two-year-old son is being cared for by relatives.
