Random breath test leads to potential $1m drug bust

POLICE are waiting on test results to confirm a suspected find of more than $1 million in amphetamines allegedly uncovered in a random breath test stop near Boggabri yesterday.

A highway patrol officer from Tamworth pulled over a man in his 30s on the Kamilaroi Highway south of Boggabri about noon.

Police breath tested the man and the suspicions raised by the officer lead him to search the silver Toyota Camry sedan.

 The Senior Constable allegedly found a bottle inside the car, allegedly containing a liquid form of amphetamine.

They allege the 200ml of liquid would have a potential street value, once processed, of around $1.4 million.

Oxley Local Area Command duty officer, Inspector Jeff Budd, said the bottle had been sent for analysis and police investigations were continuing.
