South-West Police working hard

A new report reveals Australia's consumption of stimulants such as methylamphetamine, cocaine and MDMA is among the highest in the world.

However, South-west police have conducted numerous raids this year getting illegal substances off the streets.

In April, large quantities of cannabis and illegal firearms were seized in part of operation Operation SouthWest Forestry.

In May as part of operation Abalone police again seized large quantities of illicit drugs from Hamilton, Warrnambool and Portland properties.

Shane Neilson from the Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission says the data shows consumption has hit record levels, particularly in regional areas.

"Regional consumption of drugs monitored by the program exceeds capitol city consumption. Regional consumption of MDMA, cocaine, alcohol and nicotine, was the highest ever recorded by the program."
