Substance sent to lab

By Deniliquin Pastoral Times

A yellow crystallised substance seized from a car in Deniliquin on Friday evening has been sent for laboratory analysis.

Police say while the substance was unrecognisable at the time, there is a belief it may be a prohibited drug.

The crystals were in a small resealable bag found in a Holden Commodore stopped by police on the Wakool Rd at Deniliquin about 4.30pm Friday.

Police said the car, driven by a 21 year-old Deniliquin man, had pulled in front of an unmarked police car and was seen to be driven ‘‘erratically’’ and allegedly above the speed limit, which led to it being stopped.
