At 11:50am on Saturday (November 18) Police from Murwillumbah were patrolling Numbinbah Road at Kynnumboon when a vehicle parked on the side of the roadway did a u turn and drove off.

The vehicle was stopped and searched by police, who allegedly seized ‘a quantity of cannabis and methamphetamine’.

Police also found numerous items they allege were stolen.

The 38-year-old driver was taken to Tweed Heads police station and charged with goods in custody suspected being stolen and two counts of possessing a prohibited drug.

He was taken to Byron Bay Police Station where he was also charged with possessing prohibited drug, a break and enter offence in Lismore, and two break, enter and steal offences in Byron Bay.

He has been refused bail to appear at Tweed Heads Local Court.
