A 23-year-old man was homeless at the time police allegedly found him carrying $10,000 in cash together with cannabis, steroids and benzodiazepines at Skennars Head earlier this year.

Rylee Shane Durheim appeared in Lismore Local Court on Monday charged with four counts of possessing a prohibited drug and possessing the $10,000, which they suspect to be unlawfully obtained.

Just after 2pm on January 30 police encountered Mr Durheim at Skennars Head.

During a search of the 23-year-old police allegedly found 33 grams of cannabis, methandienone in two amounts of 1.42 grams and 6.42 grams, 4.05 grams (26 tablets) of Alprazolam and $10,000 cash.

Police seized the drugs, which were sent away to the Department of Analytical Laboratories for analysis.

Methandienone was the first widely used anabolic steroid by professional an amateur athletes.

Alprazolam, commonly known as Xanax, is a potent benzodiazepine used to treat anxiety disorders.

On May 18, Mr Durheim was arrested and taken to Lismore police station where he was charged and eventually granted conditional bail.

When he was arrested police discovered Mr Durheim was ‘couch surfing’ and had no fixed address.

But after enquiries by police he was granted conditional bail to live with his mother at Cumbalum and to report to Ballina police every Monday.

On Monday the court heard Mr Durheim had moved to a Ballina address and it was noted on his bail papers.

Magistrate Peter Bugden adjourned Mr Durheim’s matters until July 17 for reply to the brief of evidence.
