Update: Main Arm raids… The police are in Mullum!

After several reports today from readers that there is a 'massive drug operation' and a 'gun and drug unit from Parramatta!', an intrepid Echonetdaily drudge wandered over to Barry Lomath Oval next to the skate park and netball courts in Mullum.

Around 1.25pm police from Richmond Local Area Command searched at a house in Jubilee Street, Lismore, and seized crystal methamphetamine and hash, together with fireworks, laptops, iPads and mobile phones.

The occupant was taken to Lismore Police Station where he refused to be interviewed.

He was charged with possesses prohibited drug, supply a prohibited drug, and deal with property suspected proceeds of crime.

The man was refused bail to appear in Lismore Local Court yesterday.
