A man has faced Byron Bay Local Court over an alleged home invasion last weekend.
Police say three men, allegedly armed with handguns, a rifle and a sword, entered a house on Poplar Street, Mullumbimby, shortly before 9pm on Sunday.
Police say they threatened a 60-year-old man, his two sons aged 22 and 13, and two friends.
After the incident was reported to police during the week, police searched a home on Azalea Street, and allegedly found a number of items, including a replica pistol.
A 23-year-old man was charged with aggravated enter dwelling with intent, affray, breach of bail, and break and enter with intent.
