Harriet Wran Arrested for Drug Possession
The daughter of the former NSW Labor premier Neville Wran, Harriet has been arrested for drug possession.
The 31-year-old was arrested at Wyong at 1.30am Wednesday morning after officers allegedly saw her and a male acting suspiciously inside a vehicle parked at a service station on the Pacific Highway at the NSW central coast.
Police say that when officers approached the vehicle, the male passenger ran from the car.
Police then spoke with Ms Wran before conducting a search of her and the vehicle.
Officers located and seized a number of laptops, mobile phones and credit cards, along with a large amount of mail. The items are alleged to be stolen.
Police also located drug paraphernalia and a small quantity of crystal substance, believed to be prohibited drugs.
Wran has now been bailed to appear at Wyong Local Court on April 3.
Ms Wran spent two years in jail after she pleaded guilty to being involved in a robbery with a drug dealer that resulted in the death of a man in Redfern in 2014.

Upon her release from jail in September 2016 Wran said:
“It’s going to be a long process and it’s going to be hard,”
In November last year, she told The Daily Telegraph she had put her past as an ice addict and jail inmate behind her to build a new life on the family farm she one day hopes to take over.
Since her release, the former private schoolgirl had been spending time on the 50-hectare property her late father and mother Jill bought in Ravensdale.
