Beekeepers can get a permit to move hives away from flood water

With so many challenges currently surrounding the bee industry, it comes as a relief to many that NSW Department of Primary Industries will issue a special group permit for beekeepers in flood warning areas to move their hives to higher ground.

A man will appear in Tweed Heads Local Court today facing intimidation and weapons charges after being arrested in Mullumbimby on Friday (September 15).

About 3:15pm police located the 43-year-old male from Penshurst near a white van in Eugenia Street after receiving information that he was possibly armed with a gun.

On searching the van, police found a firearm, ammunition, handcuffs, knives and prohibited drugs.

The man was arrested and taken to Byron Bay Police Station where he was charged with possessing an unauthorised pistol, possessing ammunition without a permit, custody of a knife, driving whilst disqualified, possessing a prohibited drug and using intimidation/violence to unlawfully influence a person.

He appeared at Tweed Heads Local Court on Saturday (September 16) where he was refused bail to reappear today.
