Two women caught with drugs
Two women from Lismore were arrested and charged with drug possession after police stopped a vehicle at Tweed Heads yesterday.
A white Ford Laser containing the two women aged 40 and 56 was travelling south on the Pacific Highway at Tweed heads when it was stopped by police about 1.30 pm.
After talking to the women police searched the car and found 28 grams of amphetamines inside the vehicle.
The women were arrested and taken to Tweed Heads police station where they were charged with supply of prohibited drugs.
They were granted conditional bail to appear at Tweed Heads local court on April 4.
A search was conducted by Lismore Detectives and officers attached to the Richmond Target Action Group of the 40 year-old womans home at 3.15pm after police obtained a search warrant.
During the search police allegedly found a small amount of marijuana which they seized.
Investigations into the matter are continuing.
In January 2011 the Richmond Local Area Command Drug Unit established Operation Jaegar to investigate the supply of amphetamines in the Lismore area.
