A Port Stephens man is behind bars after allegedly dealing drugs in the Hunter.
He was arrested, after residents reported a dangerous driver at Oyster Cove on Monday.
Police spotted a grey Holden ute on Oyster Cove Road at around 2.45pm.
Two men – aged 20 and 25 – were changing a tyre.
During a search of the vehicle, police allegedly found the drug ice and more than $2,000 in cash – some of the notes melted together.
The 20-year-old was arrested and taken to Nelson Bay Police Station.
He was charged with supplying an indictable quantity prohibited drug and dealing with the proceeds of crime, as well as a breach of bail offence.
The Lemon Tree Passage man was refused bail to appear in Newcastle Local Court today.
