Southern Tasmanian man charged with cocaine trafficking
A 34-year-old man from Southern Tasmania has been arrested and charged with Trafficking in Controlled Substance yesterday following information received from the public and specific lines of inquiry.

The man will appear in the Hobart Magistrates Court on 25 September 2023.
