Police bugged Nimbin bookshop owner in drug case

POLICE will rely on listening device recordings to prosecute Nimbin's Perceptio bookshop owner Simon Cohen who they allege was supplying cannabis from his business and growing the drug at his Jiggi home.

Cohen faces 13 drug-related charges after police allegedly seized more than 130 cannabis plants at his home and more than $16,000 alleged to be proceeds of crime from selling cannabis, in raids on September 11.

Police also allege Cohen was involved in the supply of almost 2kg of cannabis from his Cullen St business.

Prosecutor Ms Grey told Lismore Local Court the brief of evidence in Cohen's matters was outstanding but she expected it to be delivered yesterday.

Ms Grey asked Magistrate Jeff Linden for an adjournment due to listening device recordings that needed to be transcribed.

Cohen remains on conditional bail until his matter is mentioned in January next year.
