Drugs found in Australia Post parcels

Three people will face court after drugs were found in Australia Post parcels in South Australia's southeast.

Two men, aged 22 and 23, have been reported for cultivating and possessing cannabis while a 21-year-old woman has been reported for possessing prescription medication after three Australia Post parcels containing drugs were found during the search of a car at Beachport, in South Australia southeast last week.

The find led police to search homes at Beachport and at nearby Millicent on Monday where they found seven cannabis plants, cannabis oil and dried cannabis along with three home-made rifles, ammunition and other weapons.
