A man will face court today charged with drug supply offences in the Lake Macquarie area.

About 2am today (Friday 2 June 2017), officers from Lake Macquarie Local Area Command were patrolling Howard Street, Warners Bay, when they observed two men standing next to a vehicle.

After speaking with the duo, a search of the vehicle was conducted.

During the search, officers allegedly located a powder substance, believed to be ecstasy, a number of tablets and several clear resealable bags.

The items were seized and will undergo forensic examination.

A 30-year-old man was arrested and taken to Belmont Police Station where he was charged with possess prohibited drug and supply prohibited drug – greater than indictable quaintly.

He was refused bail to appear at Newcastle Local Court today (Friday 2 June 2017).
