Linnaeus Estate DA raises concerns for residents

Community concern over the current development application (DA: 10.2021.170.1) for Linnaeus Estate in Broken Head has led to detailed analysis of the DA.

A 26-year-old man from Tallai in Queensland was arrested and charged with drug supply, drug possession and traffic-related offences at Tweed Heads South yesterday afternoon (Wednesday, January 4).

Police say the three men, travelling in a Holden Commodore, were ‘acting suspiciously’ before being stopped and searched by police.

During the search police seized methamphetamine, cannabis, MDMA, scales and knives as well as drug paraphernalia and equipment to administer drugs.

The 26 year old Tallai man was bail refused until 5 January 2017.

His two co-offenders were issued with Field Court Attendance Notices to appear at Tweed Heads Local Court at a later date.
