Weekend crime and emergency services round-up:

Marijuana and cash seized

MORE than 400g of marijuana has been seized after police stopped a car for a random traffic intercept in Kepnock last night.

Bundaberg Criminal Investigation Branch Detective Sergeant Andrew Self said the car's occupants - a 26-year-old woman and a 40-year-old man - were pulled over on Greenwood St about 9pm.

"Police detected the smell of cannabis in the vehicle," Det Sgt Self said.

Det Sgt Self said the car was searched and officers found 15 clip-seal bags of marijuana, and about $1400 in cash.

"Police seized mobile phones and the cash which was believed to be proceeds of crime," he said.

The pair was both charged with one count each of producing dangerous drugs, possessing dangerous drugs and possessing tainted property.

They were released on bail, to appear in Bundaberg Magistrates Court on March 1.
 

Cigarette sparks house fire

A CHILD playing with a cigarette lighter has been blamed for starting a fire which significantly damaged a Thabeban home last night.

A Queensland Fire and Rescue spokesman said crews were called to the low-set brick home on Tree Cl, shortly before 10pm.

He said the fire was contained to one room, but a lot of damage was caused in the roof void.
