A man will appear in court after bags of drugs believed to be heroin were discovered during a vehicle stop in Nimbin yesterday (Monday September 3) .

About 10am officers saw a Ford Transit van allegedly driving in a dangerous manner on Sibley Street.

They later stopped the vehicle on Kirkland Road and subjected the driver, a 50-year-old Tweed Heads man, to a random drug test.

The drug test returned a positive reading, and the man was arrested.

Police searched the vehicle and allegedly located 10 resealable bags believed to contain heroin and cash.

The man was taken to Lismore Police Station where he was charged with dangerous driving, supplying a prohibited drug, dealing with the proceeds of crime, and possessing a prohibited drug.

He was granted conditional bail to appear at Lismore Local Court on Monday September 24.
