A 36-year-old Newrybar man remains in custody and could spend the rest of his life behind bars if police charges against him are proven.

Last Friday police indicated they had broken up an alleged drug ring as a result of Operation Eldorado, and that resulted in two arrests.

One of the men, Adam Brown of Newrybar, was charged with supplying a commercial quantity of a prohibited drug.

Police alleged Brown conducted half a dozen ecstasy deals in the three months leading up to his arrest, claiming 85kg of the drug changed hands.

Brown faced Lismore Local Court yesterday, where he was denied bail owing to the large amount of the alleged transaction.

But now we have hard evidence that we are failing our elders. Some of the data that has been released is shocking. One in five residents have experienced sexual or physical abuse.
