Woman charged with drug supply, stolen goods

A 52-year-old woman has been charged over drugs and alleged stolen property found in her Tweed Heads home during a police raid yesterday (Monday  June 12).

About 3pm officers from Tweed/Byron Local Area Command searched a unit on Enid Street occupied by the woman.

During the search, police allegedly seized 500gms of cannabis and more than $9,000 in cash, together with several computers and computer hardware believed to be stolen.

The woman was arrested and taken to Tweed Heads Police Station where she was charged with drug supply and possession, receiving stolen property, goods in custody and knowingly deal with the proceeds of crime.

She was refused bail and will appear in Tweed Heads Local Court today (Tuesday June 13).

    Can the police even count?

    500 grams – 17 ounces – say an ounce costs you $260 this means the value of the pot is actually $4641

    There is NO WAY anyone would pay $126 for a quarter and certainly no bloody way they’d pay $504 for an ounce.

    Honestly the way the police sensationalize the so called “profit” needs to be addressed, if they are willing to lie to make the bust seem huge, what else are they lying about?
