A Broome woman accused of possessing a trafficable amount of methamphetamine has been granted conditional bail.

Alieka Diane Jaffrey appeared before the Broome Magistrates Court via videolink from West Kimberley Regional Prison on Monday to make a bail application.

Bail was unopposed by the prosecution given the fact Ms Jaffrey had no prior record and advised for a number of conditions to be put in place.

Magistrate Andrew Maughan advised Ms Jaffrey to live with her aunt at a residence in Bilingurr under a curfew, surrender her passport to Broome Police and not apply for a new one, refrain from entering Broome International Airport grounds and avoid contacting co-accused Tassie Loice Aitken.

Ms Aitken, appeared in court on an earlier date and was remanded in custody to next appear on Monday January 6.
