MAN CHARGED WITH DRUG AND FIREARM OFFENCES NEAR KEMPSEY

A 54-year-old man has been charged with drug and firearms offences after a police search warrant at a property near Kempsey.

Last week, Mid North Coast police searched a Corangula property where they allegedly found 23 cannabis plants and a hydroponic setup.

Police say they further located around two kilograms of cannabis inside the home, along with six firearms and ammunition.

The items were seized, and the man will face court in April.
