Police confirm Main Arm drug operation

NSW Police have finally confirmed what pretty much every one in Main Arm already knows – they are conducting drug operations in the north of the Shire.

Three officers have been injured after allegedly being assaulted by a man near the Queensland border.

About 4:30pm (Friday, 26 April, 2019) officers from the Tweed-Byron Police District were on patrol when they sighted a man causing a disturbance and abusing passers-by.

The man ran towards the beach across the Queensland border. He was followed by officers who contacted Queensland Police for assistance.

The man was located soon after allegedly abusing more members of the public. As police approached he became more aggressive, striking all three officers.

Additional officers – as well as an off-duty officer – were required to restrain the man.

He was arrested and taken into custody by Queensland Police. The 42-year old has been charged with serious assault, assault police and obstruct police.
