A man driving a car in which police allegedly found 102 ecstasy tablets in Lismore on Monday has been refused bail.
About 9pm on Monday, Highway Patrol officers from Richmond Local Area Command stopped a Commodore utility on the Bruxner Highway.
A search of the vehicle by the officers allegedly located the pills.
The 22-year-old male driver and a 25-year-old male passenger were arrested and taken to Lismore Police Station.
The driver was charged with supplying a prohibited drug, while the passenger was questioned and released without charge pending further inquiries.
The 22-year-old man from Shannon Brook appeared before Lismore Local Court yesterday where bail was refused. He will re-appear before Lismore Local Court on Tuesday June 19.
Superintendent Stuart Smith from the Traffic and Highway Patrol Command warned that Highway Patrol officers are not only focused on traffic issues.
‘Traffic and Highway Patrol officers in border locations will continue to enforce road rules and with their current technology and deployment capability will identify and prosecute those that choose to engage in criminal activity,’ he said.
