A man is due to appear in court on Monday after he was charged with drug and firearm offences following a police raid on a property at Bonalbo.

About 7.45am on Wednesday (June 17), police raided a house on Station Street, Bonalbo, and seized a loaded pump action shotgun and a loaded sawn-off .22 calibre rifle.

In nearby sheds they allegedly located over 432 cannabis plants, 26kg of cannabis leaf, 2.6 grams of cannabis resin and some 90 grams of cannabis seed, plus a crossbow.

A 54-year-old man was arrested at the scene and taken to Casino Police Station where he was interviewed and charged with the offences related to prohibited firearms as well as manufacturing, growing and possessing commercial quantities of drugs.

The man appeared in Lismore Local Court yesterday and was remanded in custody to reappear on Monday, June 23.
