A 28-year-old Colyton woman will remain behind bars after being charged with possessing a commercial quantity of crystal methamphetamine (ice) on Friday (August 24).

About 3:00am on police patrolling Tweed Heads noticed a white Subaru sedan turn into Dry Dock Road Tweed Heads South.

The vehicle was stopped on suspicion and the occupants were searched.

Police found drug paraphernalia and a small glass bottle containing methamphetamine (ice) and cannabis.

Police say the gross weight of the methamphetamine was 28.5 grams and the cannabis was two grams.

The woman was arrested and taken to Tweed Heads Police Station where a further search located another small re-sealable plastic bag of ice inside her clothing.

She was charged with drug supply and possession.

The woman was refused bail and appeared at Byron Bay Local Court later that day, where she was again refused bail to appear at the Tweed Heads Local Court on October 15.
