Traffic stop leads police meth, homemade bombs in country NSW

A TRAFFIC stop has allegedly led police to a stash of meth and homemade bombs at a house in country NSW.

Police said officers intercepted a vehicle on Wheelers Lane at Dubbo around 4.50pm on Wednesday after noticing the driver wasn’t wearing a seatbelt.

While speaking with the driver, police said officers developed cause to search the vehicle, during which they allegedly found methylamphetamine and cash inside.


The driver, a 47-year-old man from Dubbo, was arrested and taken to Dubbo Police Station while police searched his home on Page Avenue.

During the search, officers allegedly found more methylamphetamine, as well as four improvised explosive devices, seven electronic control devices, and suspected stolen property, including a fridge, power tools, and jewellery.

The man has since been charged with a long list of serious offences, including possessing or using a military-style weapon without a permit and seven counts of possessing or using a prohibited weapon without a permit.

He was also charged with possessing and supplying an indictable quantity of a prohibited drug and being in custody of suspected stolen goods.

The 47-year-old was remanded in custody to appear in Dubbo Local Court today.
