Police are still tracking a Rushworth man, 21, who fled his home last week after police found large quantities of drugs and money on his property.

At 8.15am last Thursday, Rushworth police alongside officers from the Central Victorian Response Unit issued a warrant to search the man’s property for illicit substances.

Upon entering the premises, police say they discovered large quantities of cash as well as large amounts of various drugs including methylamphetamine, otherwise known as ‘ice’, amphetamine, cannabis, ecstasy tablets and heroin.

The man is believed to have fled as police arrived and his whereabouts are unknown.

Police described the man as being of fair complexion, about 185cm tall with brown hair, brown eyes and a slim build. He was last seen wearing a black hoodie, black tracksuit pants and white runners.

Central Victorian Response Unit Senior Sergeant Mick Peckham said police were tracking the man’s location and would appreciate the community’s help.

‘‘Ongoing support would be appreciated by police in relation to any drug related information,’’ he said.

‘‘People can ring Crime Stoppers or their local police and pass on any information.’’

Anybody with information can phone Crime Stoppers 1800333000.
