Information provided to Crime Stoppers SA by the community directly led to the discovery of an array of weapons and drugs during May.
Cannabis emerged as the most common drug to be seized for the month, with 651 plants and more than 26kg found at numerous locations across metro Adelaide and country South Australia.
In May we profiled the disappearance and suspected murder of Brahma Lodge woman Gail King, called for help to identify a man wanted for an assault, profiled the unsolved stabbing murder of 36-year old mother Suzanne Poll at the Parabanks Shopping Centre, Salisbury in 1993, and showed a man caught on CCTV wanted for an aggravated assault at the Elizabeth Shopping Centre in February.
