Police say they have dismantled a drug laboratory in Lismore which they believed has been used to process cocaine.

Richmond Local Area command officers executed a search warrant on a home in High Street, Lismore Heights on Wednesday and allegedly found a clandestine drug laboratory.

They established a crime scene and guarded the premises overnight until police from the Chemical Operations Unit, with the assistance of NSW Fire & Rescue HAZMAT officers could examine the premises yesterday.

A police spokesperson told Echonetdaily that no arrests had yet been made but investigations were continuing.

The spokesperson said a number of items used in the alleged manufacture of drugs, believed to be cocaine, were seized and would undergo further forensic examinations.

Investigations into the incident are continuing and police are urging anyone with information to come forward.
