Crows star Brad Crouch and young gun Tyson Stengle have allegedly been caught with an illicit substance in the Adelaide CBD.

The club revealed on Monday the duo was stopped by police but will not be charged.

Crows head of football Adam Kelly said the club was extremely disappointed in what was “clearly a significant breach of community standards”.

“First and foremost, the alleged conduct is serious and we will continue to ask questions and make sure we have all of the facts before settling on a definitive position going forward,” Kelly said.

“The club will also liaise closely with the AFL and AFL Players’ Association during this process, including working through any consequences under the AFL’s illicit drug policy.

“What is absolutely clear is that all players across the league are well educated about drug use and relevant policies.”

Kelly says the club will ensure both players received the necessary support.

Stengle is currently yet to enter a plea over drink driving charges levelled against him earlier this year.

The 21-year-old received a four-match ban after he was caught by police allegedly driving an unregistered car in Adelaide’s south in April.

He failed a blood alcohol test with a reading of 0.125 and faces a fine and loss of licence.

He was due to face court in August but instead attended training, citing the AFL’s COVID rules
as reason for his absence.

The controversy also comes as a cloud hangs over Crouch’s future at the club, with the out-of-contract midfielder saying he won’t take a short-term deal at the Crows.

Stengle making some pretty bad decisions for someone who hasn't been in the system long.

Don't think he'll last very long as an AFL player
