Police in Bondi have had their easiest drug seizure in history.
Officers were patrolling the Sydney hotspot on Saturday night (April 24) along Gould Street, where they also happen to have a police station.
They noticed a car was going in the wrong direction of a one-way street and witnessed the driver pull over and allegedly start using his phone.
Authorities walked over to him and asked him a couple of questions about what he was doing.
A statement from the Eastern Suburbs Police Area Command states what happened next is kind of hard to believe.
"Plain-clothed police approached the vehicle and introduced themselves to the 26-year-old Guildford man to discuss the traffic violation," police said.
"While speaking to the nervous driver who kept fidgeting with his phone, a woman also approached the vehicle and interrupted the detectives conversation, asking 'Excuse me. Can I speak to the driver? I need to speak to him'."
You absolutely know where this is going but you can totally imagine police officers seeing and hearing this all play out.
The statement continues: "The plain clothed detective asked why, and she candidly replied, 'We're buying cocaine'. The woman had text messages on her phone organising the deal."
Eastern Suburbs Police allege the driver of the car started 'frantically' trying to shove 'plastic packaging' down the side of his car seat.
They took him into custody and had a quick search of his vehicle.
According to them, they discovered a cheeky eight bags of cocaine, which is worth around $3,100 on the street.
NSW Police said: "The driver was charged with disobey one-way sign, deal with property proceeds of crime, supply prohibited drug and drive motor vehicle during disqualification period.
"He was served a field court attendance notice and will next appear before Waverley Local Court on 19 May 2021."
There's no word on whether the woman who approached the vehicle copped any punishment.
