Nimbin teenager found with cannabis, cash
A 19-year-old Nimbin man has been charged after police recovered cash and drugs on Thursday morning.
Police allege that they saw the 19-year-old and two other people in Rainbow Lane, Senior Constable David Henderson said.
All three ran when they sighted police, Snr Const Henderson said.
A few moments later police caught up and detained them without incident.
Police located 441 grams of cannabis in a bag and found that the 19-year-old was in possession of $705 cash.
He was charged with dealing with the proceeds of crime and released on bail.
A decision on charges relating to the cannabis will be made after the bag has been forensically tested.
