Police also recovered other items including a small amount of Methylamphetamine and ammunition.

A 31-year-old man was taken to Warwick Watch House where he was charged with:

  • six counts of enter premises and commit an indictable offence

 He was due to appear at the Warwick Magistrates Court today.

Detective Inspector Mat Kelly said, “These joint operations with our strategic partners will continue to be executed across the South West District, we will continue to focus on disrupting rural criminal behaviour with an aim to deter future offending”.
