A man and woman, both from Perth, have been charged after Cue police allegedly found 86 grams of cannabis and an array of illegal prescription drugs during a traffic stop.

Officers stopped the pair in a Commodore wagon about 35km north of Cue on the Great Northern Highway about 10.20am yesterday.

Officer-in-charge at Cue Police Station, Sergeant Clint Brennan, said officers found several tablets of the depressant Valium, along the powerful oxycodone-based pain relief medication Endone, and a number of unidentified tablets which would be sent for analysis.

Sgt Brennan said neither of the pair had scripts for the drugs.

He said the tablets were found in the glovebox while the cannabis was hidden in the body of the car in a tea tin.

Officers also allegedly found a small cannabis smoking pipe.

The 39-year-old male driver was charged with four counts of possessing a prohibited drug, while the 36-year-old female passenger was charged with one count of possessing a prohibited drug and one count of possessing drug paraphernalia.

They will both face Cue Magistrate’s Court in late March.
