DRUGS, FIREARMS AND CASH SEIZED ON COFFS COAST

Police have seized up to $95,000 worth of drugs, firearms and cash on the NSW Coffs Coast.

Two men have been charged as part of ongoing investigations targeting large-scale, mid-level, and serious crimes in the area.

Around 8:30am yesterday, officers attached to the Coffs Harbour Region Enforcement Squad spoke with two men at Kingscliff in the Northern Rivers region.

Police searched the pair and allegedly located illicit drugs and cash.

As a result, officers searched a home on Albany Street, Coffs Harbour and Jaboh Close, Upper Orara, where they allegedly located a hydroponic set-up, cocaine, cannabis, cash, nine firearms and ammunition.

Two men, both aged 37, were arrested and taken to Tweed Heads Police Station.

Both were refused bail to appear at Byron Bay Local Court today.
