Around 1:45am on Sunday (December 18) police conducting speed enforcement on the Bruxner Highway at Tatham detected a sedan travelling well above the speed limit.

Police followed the vehicle which took several turns before stopping in the driveway of a farm.

They say the driver, a 35-year-old Port Macquarie man, produced a cancelled driver’s licence as identification.

Believing there may be drugs in the car, police carried out a search and located $6,350 cash, four bags of methylamphetamine, five capsules of MDMA (ecstasy), masks, knives, drug paraphernalia and items linked to drug supply.

The man also had an outstanding arrest warrant.

He has been charged with: supplying a prohibited drug; dealing with the proceeds of crime; exceeding the speed by 30km/h; carrying a knife and driving on a cancelled licence as well as the outstanding warrant.

He will appear in Lismore Local Court on Monday.

Mandy Nolan’s Soapbox: Listening to the truth tellers

A long time ago my husband had to attend a meeting in Redfern. He works in the health and academic sector and it was a consultation with some First Nations clinicians and community workers. He arrived a little earlier for the meeting to the centre – not your typical clinical setting but a regular house. On arrival he was greeted by an older woman who led him to a table and offered him a cup of tea. They chatted. Had a laugh. She offered him a biscuit.
