A woman will front court this week after a routine police stop uncovered a quantity of prohibited drugs and instances of alleged child endangerment.
Just after 1am on Sunday, police attached to the Riverina Police District stopped a NSW-registered bronze Mazda SUV on the Olympic Highway near Junee.
"An eight-year-old and a four-year-old were unrestrained sleeping in the back of the vehicle," said Riverina District Inspector Peter McLay.
"Appropriate action has been taken in respect to those children."
A further search of the vehicle uncovered a large quantity of methamphetamine.
Police allege the substance had been concealed in a knotted plastic bag within the plastic kick panel surrounding the vehicle's transmission.
The package and paneling were seized at the scene, along with four mobile phones found inside the car.
"Certainly this is a significant find, and I congratulate the police involved. Up to 245 grams of ice, or some $120,000 worth of ice has been removed from our streets," Inspector McLay said.
Two males, aged 41 and 37 were conveyed to Wagga Police Station, along with the 38-year-old female driver.
All of the occupants are believed to reside in Sydney.
The two men were released without charge, pending further investigations by police.
The woman was charged with supply prohibited drug, indictable and commercial quantity.
She has been bail refused to appear before Wagga Local Court on Monday.
Police also issued her an infringement notice for the unrestrained children in the car.
A spokesperson for the Riverina Police District told The Daily Advertiser that police contacted FACS to make arrangements for the ongoing welfare of the children.
