Disgraced Olympian Scott Miller has been embroiled in a drug scandal after he was arrested by the police allegedly in possession of several grams of ‘ice’ and AUS$17,000 in cash.
The Atlanta 1996 dual medallist was arrested at a home in Mascot, in Sydney’s south, and charged with two counts of possessing goods suspected of being stolen and one count of possessing a prohibited drug.
The Mascot home where he was arrested had been under surveillance by detectives for some time, Channel 7 reported.
The charges come four years after Miller narrowly avoided jail for a 2009 conviction over the supply of ecstasy tablets and receiving stolen goods.
He pleaded guilty to five charges, including giving mate Mark Catchpole – son of rugby union legend Ken Catchpole – 12 ecstacy tablets as a birthday present and possessing a stolen pill press.
