Two men have been charged with drug offences in Byron Bay on Friday (February 9) while apparently in the middle of a drug deal.

About 3.30pm , officers from Tweed/Byron Police District were patrolling Gilmour Crescent, Byron Bay, when they observed two men at a parked car.

Police approached the car and spoke with the men before conducting a search.

During the search, officers allegedly located cash, scales, snap lock bags and drugs.

The men, both aged 30, were arrested and taken to Byron Bay Police Station where one of the men was charged with possessing a prohibited drug.

He was granted conditional bail to appear at Tweed Heads Local Court on Monday 12 February 2018.

The other man was charged with possessing a prohibited drug, supplying a prohibited drug, dealing with proceeds of crime and an outstanding arrest warrant.

He was refused bail to appear at Lismore Local Court today (Saturday 10 February 2018).
