A taxi driver has allegedly been found in possession of illicit drugs and detected drug driving in Port Pirie overnight.
Just after 12.30am, Friday 24 June, patrols stopped the driver on Balmoral Road as he was heading to collect a fare. Police drug tested the driver who returned an alleged positive result to methamphetamine. He was also found to be in possession of an ice pipe and a small amount of methamphetamine.
The 40-year-old local man, who had been working throughout the night, was issued with a 24 hour direction not to drive and a drug diversion in relation to the methamphetamine and pipe. He may face court on drug driving charges pending forensic analysis of the drug test.
