Home and Away spoilers: Ben faces jail for serious drug trafficking crimes08/17/2019
Ben (Rohan Nichol) has been arrested in shocking scenes, which led to him being bundled into a police car by Murray. Colby (Tim Franklin) comes up to witness the scene, and Alf (Ray Meagher), Roo (Georgie Parker) and John (Shane Withington) are all following, outraged on his behalf. Ben is scoffing at the situation, mystified as to why the cops think he’s involved in an international drug ring.
When Maggie (Kestie Morassi) gets a call from Roo and Ben, she rushes to him, while McCarthy briefs Colby at the station. The drug smuggling situation is an ongoing situation with the Australian Federal Police. Colby enters the interview room, much to Ben’s relief, but then the two police officers show Ben a series of photos.
One of the photos reveal one of Ben’s boards, which has been hollowed out so that drugs can be placed inside them. Ben is stunned, and says he outsourced the manufacture of the boards to a guy at a warehouse in Yabbie Creek, so it’s him they need to talk to.
When Ben comes out of the interview room, Maggie presumes the misunderstanding is over, but this is far from the truth. The police go to investigate the warehouse using the address Ben supplies, but they find it completely empty with the man in charge nowhere to be found. Due to the seriousness of the crime, Ben has to spend the night in jail.
Maggie brings dinner to Ben in his cell, then returns home full of outrage. Meanwhile, Colby reveals that the situation is getting worse for Ben, as the manufacturer he was working with was using the identity of someone who’s been dead for years. What’s more, the police have run every lead possible and come back with nothing. All the evidence is pointing to Ben as the drug trafficker. Plus, as Ben didn’t pay a deposit on the deal, there’s no money trail to follow.
Now that all evidence points towards Ben being guilty, it’s revealed the AFP have decided to push ahead with the charges. The Astonis are left rocked to the core…
