Tweed Daily News - - NEWS -

■ A MAN who said he was rid­ing his bike to a ser­vice sta­tion to buy cereal has been ar­rested af­ter po­lice found him hold­ing an il­le­gal weapon. Po­lice said they were trav­el­ling along Wharf St about 2am on Sun­day when they saw two men rid­ing their bikes along the foot­path with­out hel­mets. Po­lice ques­tioned the two men, who said they were off to a 7-11 to buy milk and Nutri-grain. Af­ter some in­quiries, po­lice dis­cov­ered the men were known to po­lice for drugs charges and searched them.

Dur­ing the search they found an ex­tendible ba­ton in the pock­ets of a 44-year-old man. The man said he picked it up from the gut­ter but later ad­mit­ted he bought it through his con­nec­tions as a former se­cu­rity guard. The man’s ba­ton was seized and the man was sum­monsed to Tweed Heads Lo­cal Court at a later date.
