A ROUTINE and honest conversation between local police and a Lismore resident led to the discovery of a prohibited drug.
Police said they saw a 35 year old Lismore man riding a pushbike on Crown Street, South Lismore yesterday.
Police stopped the man in order to speak to him about the perils of not wearing a helmet.
As they spoke to him they formed an opinion about his sobriety.
The man then decided to inform police that he was in possession of ice and a glass pipe.
Police searched the man and found he was telling the truth.
He will face Lismore Court next month for possession of a prohibited drug and possessing implements to administer a prohibited drug.
