Police have warned Easter festivalgoers that sniffer dogs and drug buses will be operating around the Bluesfest site during the festival.
Police inspector Gary Cowan told ABC radio this morning that additional police had been brought into the area for the operation.
‘Extra police have come up from Newcastle. Plus we’ve got our normal operation that we run out of Bluesfest. Our drug detection operation will run for three or four days.’
He added there will also be a drug bus and an RBT bus in the Byron shire.
