Police have charged another Nimbin man with drug supply, the 29th since they established the oddly named Strike Force Cuppa in June 2015.

They say that yesterday (October 6) a 23-year-old Nimbin man was charged at Lismore Police Station with taking part in supply of a prohibited drug, disguising his face with intent to commit an indictable offence, and participating in a criminal group.

The man was released on conditional bail and will appear in Lismore Local Court in November.
