THIRD MAN CHARGED WITH DRUG SUPPLY ON MID NORTH COAST

A third man has been charged as part of an ongoing investigation into drug supply in the Nambucca Valley.

In April, police established Strike Force Anketell to investigate a criminal group involved in the large-scale supply of prohibited drugs across northern New South Wales.

On Wednesday, investigators arrested two men, aged 41 and 36 at a rural property at Thora.

They were both charged with drug and firearm offences, and remain before the courts.

After further inquiries, police arrested a third man at a Bowraville home just before 9am today.

The 42-year-old was taken to Coffs Harbour Police Station.

He’s been charged 13 offences, including drug supply, using an unauthorised firearm and posessing goods suspected to be stolen.

The Missabotti man will appear at Port Macquarie Local Court tomorrow.

Further arrests are expected.
