About 3.15pm on Saturday (December 3) police patrolling along Fingal Road, Fingal, sighted two men loitering in the area.

On searching the pair, police found one of them to have ‘a range of prohibited drugs in his clothing and carry bag’.

They said the 32-year-old man had about 11 grams of cannabis, and further amounts of oxycotin and other restricted medications that require a prescription.

The man told police that he had just found the bag, and the cannabis was for pain relief.

He was arrested and taken to Tweed Heads Police Station where he was charged in relation to possessing prohibited drugs and possessing a prescribed restricted substance.

He was served a court attendance notice to appear at Tweed Heads Local Court on Monday December 12.
