The men are behind bars and are due to appear before the Lismore Local Court on Tuesday, 7 July.

The extra charges were laid by officers from Strike Force Badim, which was formed in 2014 by investigators attached to the Richmond Local Area Command drug unit, to investigate the alleged supply of methylamphetamine by outlaw motorcycle gang members in the region.

Following further inquiries, officers attached to Strike Force Badam laid additional charges against two men.

Both men remain in custody and are due to appear before Lismore Local Court on Tuesday 7 July 2015.

To date, Strike Force Badim has made 13 arrests in relation to its ongoing investigations.
