TWO MEN CHARGED OVER DRUG SUPPLY IN THE STATE’S MID NORTH COAST

Two men have been slapped with serious drug charges after more than 1kg of methylamphetamine was found in the car they were allegedly driving back in March.

Police, tasked with investigating the supply of prohibited drugs between Sydney and Coffs Harbour, stopped a Holden Cruze on the Pacific Highway at Urunga on March 12.

Officers spoke to two men, aged 20 and 25, who were travelling in the car and then seized the vehicle for further examination, where they found 1kg of methylamphetamine concealed inside an internal compartment.

It was only yesterday when detectives arrested the two men, now aged 21 and 25, at Coffs Harbour Police Station.

They were both charged with supplying a large commercial quantity of prohibited drugs.

The younger man appeared at Coffs Harbour Local Court on Thursday and was formally refused bail to re-appear in July.

The older man was refused bail to appear at Coffs Harbour Local Court today.
