On Thursday January 21, Richmond Police District Inspector David Vandergriend said the search warrant was issued on Alan John Evans, 65, at a property at his Nimbin property in Thornburn St.
“The warrant was executed on Wednesday morning, and he then appeared in court on Thursday,” he said.
“The charges the man was facing include manufacture and possess a prohibited drug.”
Insp Vandergriend said officers will allege they found a quantity of cannabis oil, plans and cannabis leaf.
“They seized more than 7kg of cannabis leaf, six plants, 36g of mushrooms and 1.7kg cannabis oil,” Insp Vandergriend said.
