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.

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.
