Police have allegedly found drugs in a tin of baby formula during a search of a car containing a three-month-old girl in the state’s far west.
Two people have been charged and the baby is in the care of the Department of Family and Community Services.
Police said they stopped a Nissan utility containing two men, a woman and the baby on the Silver City Highway north of Dareton, about 280 km south of Broken Hill, at about 5.30pm on Friday.
The driver, a 29-year-old man, returned a negative result on a breath test, but a search of the car allegedly found suspected methylamphetamine, heroin and pills in a baby formula tin.
Police estimate the drugs have a potential street value of more than $20,000.
A 25-year-old woman and a 27-year-old man were both charged with supplying a prohibited drug (indictable quantity) and possessing a prohibited drug. They were refused bail to appear at Wentworth Local Court on Saturday.
The 29-year-old male driver of the Nissan was released pending further inquiries.
