Cannabis found in sock

By Jamie Lowe

A 19 year-old Deniliquin who reportedly tried to conceal cannabis in his sock has been charged with possession of a prohibited drug.

Police said two bags of green vegetable matter were found in the man’s sock when he was searched about 9.10pm Sunday.

Police said the man was the passenger in a car stopped in Cressy St, Deniliquin.

As he was not eligible for a cannabis caution, the man is expected to appear in Deniliquin Court on the charges.
