Pair face court over stolen goods

A MAN and a woman are now before the courts over raids in Coffs Harbour which uncovered stolen goods.

A Coffs Harbour man, 27, is charged with five counts of supplying a prohibited drug, two counts of possessing a restricted substance, one count of dealing in the proceeds of crime and one count of goods in custody.

A Coffs Harbour woman, 22, is charged with five counts of supplying a prohibited drug and two counts of possessing a restricted substance.

Both were refused bail to face Coffs Harbour Local Court today.

War medals, antique jewellery and drugs were seized when police swooped on two local homes this week.

Police say the seizures and arrests have broken the back of a network allegedly responsible for a wave of break, enter and steal offences on the Coffs Coast.

Target Action Group officers and detectives hit the jackpot in the raids, uncovering eight surfboards, more than 80 pieces of jewellery, five war medals, a pushbike and electronics equipment including cameras.

Police said some of the jewellery was antique and some had precious stones including opals.

Officers also seized more than 150 ecstasy tablets and a large amount of cannabis and LSD.

A Queensland man, 28, was also arrested as part of the investigation and has since been extradited to Queensland on unrelated charges.

Investigators are still trying to find the owners for many of the items and have been inundated with calls since the raids were made public.

If you think some of the property could be yours, contact Coffs Harbour police on 6652 0299.

Police inquiries continue.
