Warwick men remain in custody after 338 caps seized

POLICE say hundreds of amphetamine capsules uncovered during a search of a Pratten St property were destined for sale in the Warwick area.

Two men and a teenager were charged after the raid about 8am on Saturday.

Warwick Senior Constable Glen Roche said police executed the search after receiving information from the public.

A shortened firearm, ammunition and 338 capsules were allegedly uncovered.

"The contents (of the capsules) equates to a reasonable quantity of amphetamine,” Sen-Constable Roche said.

"It is extremely concerning to see a shortened firearm in conjunction with people supplying drugs due to the volatile nature of drug transactions,” he said.

Mitchell Thomas Malcolm Skinner, 22, and Blake Travis Shane Trenaman, 27, are each facing multiple charges, including one count each of supplying and possessing dangerous drugs, and possessing shortened firearms.

Both Warwick men had their matters mentioned at Warwick Magistrates Court yesterday but neither applied for bail and they were remanded in custody.

Mr Trenaman will have his matter mentioned again on July8 while MrSkinner had his case adjourned to July22.

An 18-year-old Warwick woman was also charged following the weekend search but she was not held in custody and will appear in court at a later date.

Sen-Constable Roche urged anyone with further details about the alleged offences to come forward.

"We appeal for any information in relation to these persons and any use of the firearm,” he said.
