Police return pendant seized in Nimbin raid
POLICE are already returning stolen property seized in a search warrant at a Nimbin address yesterday.
Detective Chief Inspector Cameron Lindsay said enquiries in relation to the property were ongoing and police believed more people than a 45-year-old man who has been charged were involved.
"This seizure highlights just the need for people to report break and enters," he said.
"A lot of this property we now have to find owners for, and link back to various break and enters, and it makes it very difficult if people don't report that to police."
As the media got their first look at the bounty of stolen goods which included drugs, guns, gold, jewels, cash, rare coins, tools and ammunition, the Richmond LAC posted photos of the items on their Facebook page.
Det Chief Insp Lindsay said police returned to the Nimbin address yesterday afternoon and seized more property believed to be stolen.
"Officers went back to the address and seized musical instruments, hardware items and tools," he said.
"The response on our Facebook page and through the media reports has been encouraging with people identifying property that had been stolen from their place.
"One woman recognised a pendant that had been given to her when she was 13 by her boyfriend at that time.
"She's now 29 and it obviously meant a lot to her because it was her first gift any boyfriend had given her.
"So to be able to reunite her with her property today has been fantastic."
