3 charged, $600k drugs seized

Police charged two men and a woman and seized more than $630,000 worth of drugs following a raid on a house in Corndale yesterday.

At about 9.30am police from Richmond Local Area Command entered a property on Rosebank Road, and allegedly found what they described as an ‘elaborate hydroponic setup’ in a shed on the property.

Police claim to have seized 296 cannabis plants, almost 8kg of cannabis leaf, more than 400 grams of cannabis resin, three grams of methylamphetamine, a 12-gauge shotgun, ammunition and fireworks.

The street value of the drugs seized is estimated to be in excess of $630,000.

Two men and a woman were arrested at the location and taken to Lismore Police Station.

A 56-year-old man and a 42-year-old woman were subsequently charged with large commercial cultivation of cannabis, drug supply and firearms offences.

They have been refused bail to appear at Lismore Local Court today.

A 19-year-old man was subsequently charged with drug and prohibited-weapons offences.

He was granted conditional bail and is due to appear at Lismore Local Court on Monday 12 December.
