Man denies damaging police station, making threats

A Nimbin man has pleaded not guilty to smashing a police station window and threatening staff inside.

Rodrick Emile Duran, 36, was arrested in early December after he allegedly caused serious damage to a glass panel on the Zadoc St frontage of Lismore Police Station.

Mr Duran allegedly pushed a trolley containing his belongings into the front glass window of Lismore Police Station, causing the glass to shatter.

Police will also allege he came into the police station threatening staff.

Mr Duran charged with destroying or damaging property worth more than $2000 and less than $5000, intimidating police in the execution of their duty and behaving in an offensive manner.
