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.

As a police helicopter continues to intermittently hover over head in the Shire’s north, a police spokesperson provided a less-than-effusive response to Echonetdaily’s questions about the operation.

‘The State Crime Command’s Drug and Firearm Squad is currently conducting a cannabis eradication operation in the Tweed/Byron Police District, targeting outdoor cannabis crops,’ the spokesperson said.
‘We urge any person with information about the cultivation of cannabis to contact Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
‘More information will be available at the end of the operation.’

  1. They did a raid Billinudgel Nature Reserve this week! There were about 7 cars and a K-9 unit that went down in the reserve.

    They were flying the helicopter low over our property today looking for more! My son loved to watch, but they blew over my frangipani tree with their rotor blast 🙁 🙁
