INVESTIGATION INTO SYDNEY ROBBERY LEADS TO ARRESTS NEAR TAREE

Drugs, weapons and what’s believed to be a stolen Toyota Rav 4 have been seized from a home at Moorland near Taree.

A 30-year-old man and a 27-year-old woman were arrested during the search of the property on Hannam Vale Road on Thursday morning, with police locating fighting knives, revolver parts, methylamphetamine and cannabis plants.

The raid was the result of an extensive investigation into an armed robbery in Sydney earlier this year, along with a series of offences on the Mid North Coast.

Following their arrest, the man was charged with 13 offences, while the woman was charged with four offences.
