A 33-year- old Yarrabah man was charged yesterday after being intercepted during a police patrol at Manoora. 

Officers from the Cairns Property Crime Squad were conducting inquiries in the area at around 11.20am when they stopped to speak with the man as he was walking along Pioneer Street.

The man was arrested in relation to another matter and a search allegedly uncovered two small packages of cannabis in his possession.

He was charged with possession of a dangerous drug and is due to appear in the Cairns Magistrates Court today.
