During the execution of the warrant police allegedly seized almost a kilogram of cannabis, 5 grams of crystal methylamphetamine, almost 2 grams of ecstasy and a quantity of cash.

The drugs have a potential street value of over $40,000.

Investigations are ongoing.

Coffs Clarence crime manager, Detective Inspector Darren Jameson said, “there is absolutely no surprise that we again find cannabis at the centre of the seizure of other drugs”.

"As a gateway drug to a lifetime of drug abuse and addiction, which has been shown to be the case time and again here locally, I am extremely pleased with the ongoing work of all officers from our command in tackling these dangerous drugs that wreak havoc in our community”’ Det Insp. Jameson said.
