Man facing drugs charges following Tweed RBT stop

An RBT stop on the Tweed has led to the arrest of a man on drugs charges.

Police says the 39-year-old was behind the wheel of a Toyoto Hi-Ace that was pulled in to the random breath test zone on Minjungbal Drive around 4pm on Friday.

The driver returned a negative result to a roadside breath test.


Police then searched the vehicle and allegedly seized over $9,000 in cash, as well as items believed to be illicit drugs.

The man was arrested and taken to Tweed Heads Police Station where he was charged with supplying and possessing a prohibited drug and deal with proceeds of crime.

He was granted conditional bail and will appear at Tweed Heads Local Court on 26 March.
