A 24-year-old Wardell man has been charged with drug supply after being stopped by a highway patrol officer on Thursday at 3pm.
Police allege the officer noted a strong smell of cannabis coming from the car and noticed that the man reached into a backpack and threw a large bag containing cannabis not the back seat.
Inside the bag police located 12 further bags containing a total of 219 grams of cannabis and 8 grams of Psilocybin (magic mushrooms).
Police found documentation inside the car that indicated the 24-year-old was about to sell these drugs. Police also found empty bags and scales.
Also present in the car were a woman and small child seated on the back seat.
The Wardell man was taken to Ballina Police Station where Detectives charged him with Supply Prohibited Drug and two counts of Possess Prohibited Drug.
He will appear in Ballina Local Court in March.
