A man has been charged after drugs, cash and ammunition were located at a Chinderah home.

In September 2020, detectives from the Tweed/Byron Police District commenced Strike Force Glaze to investigate the supply of firearms and prohibited drugs, mainly methylamphetamine, in the NSW Far North Coast region.
