Parkes female, 38, found in possession of ice

A 38-year-old Parkes female remains in custody after being found in possession of 14.81 grams of what police will allege to be Methylamphetamine - the drug otherwise known as ice. 

Tarnya Hastie was stopped on the Renshaw McGirr Way by police at 6.30am on Wednesday.

Checks revealed she is disqualified from driving a motor vehicle.

Officers searched a male passenger and the vehicle, a Kia sedan, before a female officer attended the scene and searched Hastie. 

Nothing was found on the passenger or in the car, however police allegedly located a small plastic bag containing the drugs on Hastie.

She was arrested, taken to Parkes Police Station and charged with drive motor vehicle during disqualification period; supply prohibited drug greater than indictable and less than commercial quantity; and possess prohibited drug. 

Hastie was formally refused bail in Parkes Local Court on Wednesday.

She will re-appear in Parkes Local Court on Friday, January 11.
