Man charged over alleged drug supply

A man was charged over allegedly supplying drugs on the Mid North Coast.

About 10am on Thursday March 1, Manning Great Lakes police executed a search warrant at a property in Winter Street, Tinonee.

Several items were seized, including steroids and jewellery suspected of being stolen.

A 29-year-old man was arrested at the property and was taken to Taree Police Station.

Police will allege in court the man used the ‘dark web’ to sell prohibited drugs at a business in Taree.

He was charged with three counts supply prohibited drug indictable quantity, six counts of supply prohibited drug, and goods in custody suspected of being stolen.

The man was refused bail and due to appear before Taree Local Court on Friday, March 2.

Manning Great Lakes Commander Superintendent Shane Cribb praised the work of officers and said the supply of prohibited drugs would not be tolerated.

“Police will continue to target and stop drugs from hitting our streets,” he said.

“We want people to know that if you are involved in the distribution of drugs, we will be knocking on your door and taking the appropriate action.”

Inquiries will continue.
