Police in NSW have charged two Shepparton men after illegal drugs, a large amount of cash and a bush python were found following a car crash at Parkes.
At about 8.30
Police attended and found one of the male occupants of the Landcruiser trapped in the vehicle.
Rescuers had to cut the man free from the wreckage and he was taken to Parkes Hospital for treatment. The man had initially refused medical treatment, raising the suspicions of local police.
While the rescue was underway, officers were forced to capture a 1.5
The reptile had been inside a box in the four-wheel drive, but the force of the impact knocked it free.
The man’s travelling companion and the male driver of the other car did not require hospital treatment.

Police believe the boat had been used to store and smuggle illegal drugs.
Officers searched both men’s belongings and found nearly $195
The money has been seized and both men have been charged with dealing in the proceeds of crime. One of the men faces a separate charge of possessing/supplying a prohibited drug and the other has been charged with possession of protected fauna.
