TAG squad has a big win

COFFS HARBOUR'S crimefighters have had a big win in their war on drugs.

Police officers seized more than 10 kilograms of cannabis head with an estimated street value of $200,000 in a raid at Lowanna.

Seven Target Action Group (TAG) officers searched the Camp Creek Road property at 9am on Friday.

At the scene, they questioned eight people -- five men and three women -- ranging in age from 35 to 70.

Coffs/Clarence investigations manager, Detective Senior Sergeant Peter O'Reilly, said they would be issued court attendance notices for allegedly knowingly taking part in the cultivation of cannabis and the supply of cannabis.

Police are continuing their inquiries into the haul.

"It's a significant seizure, and we are hopeful it will frustrate criminal activity," Sgt O'Reilly said.

"We encourage the public to continue to supply information to police, whether it's through Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000, or their local police.

"All information is dealt with discreetly and confidentially."
