A routine traffic intercept led to a firearm and drugs being located when police intercepted a Ford Falcon in Francis Avenue, Drouin about 12.50am 

Police quickly discovered the driver, a 45-year-old Cranbourne man, was driving while disqualified.

It was also determined that the vehicle was displaying incorrect registration plates.

A search of the driver and his 25-year-old female passenger soon turned up a small amount of methamphetamines and GHB.

Police then turned their sights on the pair’s vehicle where they discovered a home-made firearm.

The Cranbourne man was charged with possessing a drug of dependence and driving while disqualified.

The Traralgon woman was charged with possessing a drug of dependence, possessing a firearm, possessing ammunition and committing an indictable offence while on bail.

Both were remanded in police custody to appear in Latrobe Valley Magistrates’ Court on Monday.
