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.

Police searched the man and located more than $1,000 in cash.

A short time later, officers executed a Weapons Prohibition Order search at a home on Anne Street, Chinderah, where they seized cannabis, methylamphetamine, ammunition, firearm parts and mobile phones.

He was charged with 37 offences including acquire ammunition subject to prohibition, acquire firearm part subject to prohibition, supply prohibited drugs on an ongoing basis, possess prohibited drug, deal with the proceeds of crime and organise/conduct/assist drug premises.
