Man on big drug charges

A NIMBIN man is facing serious drugs charges after police raided his home yesterday and seized cocaine, LSD, ice, speed, cannabis and ketamine.

When Richmond Local Area Command detectives executed a search warrant on the Cullen St property yesterday morning they found its 53-year-old occupant at home.

A search of the home uncovered what police believe to be cocaine, LSD, methamphetamine (ice), ketamine and amphetamine (speed).

Police found a large amount of cannabis heads, cannabis seeds and more than $3000 in cash.

Detectives seized 46 hydroponically grown cannabis plants at different stages of maturity growing in various rooms in the house.

Numerous resealable plastic bags were found throughout the house and police also seized digital scales.

Ketamine is an anesthetic drug used in human and veterinary medicine and known to produce hallucinations.

The man was arrested and taken to Lismore Police Station where he was charged with various serious drug offences.
