Houses without smoke detectors very alarming

Fire & Rescue NSW is always busy and the nation-wide fires in recent years have highlighted the importance and value of our firefighters.

The replica pistol seized by police from a car in Charlton Avenue, South Lismore, on Monday, February 5.

Police from the Richmond Target Action group will allege that at 2.10pm on Monday they saw a vehicle driving along Caniaba Street, South Lismore, at speed well in excess of the speed limit.

The vehicle came to a rapid stop outside a Charlton Avenue address and the driver ran inside a house.

As police approached the house the driver, a 31-year-old Queensland man, left the house and spoke to police. He tested positive to methamphetamine and was placed under arrest.

Police searched the vehicle, allegedly locating 3.7 grams of methamphetamine, 50 millilitres of morphine and implements used to administer a prohibited drug. A further search allegedly located a Beretta replica pistol.

At Lismore Police Station the man tested positive to methamphetamine.

He has been charged with two counts of supplying prohibited drug and possessing a firearm. A further charge may be laid pending the result of his drug analysis.

The man has been refused bail and will appear in Lismore Local Court this morning (Tuesday, February 6).
