A Raymond Terrace man is facing the prospect of life in jail after he was charged with two counts of supplying a large commercial quantity of methylamphetamine.
Shannon Paul Johnson, 31, was arrested in a garage in Emu Street, Raymond Terrace about 4.15pm on Monday and was later charged with the serious drug supply offences, which carry the maximum penalty of life in jail, as well as knowingly participate in a criminal group, two counts of dealing with the proceeds of crime and handling explosives without a license.
But it appears detectives attached to Strike Force Twomey had also been looking into his affairs.
The strike force was established to investigate the supply of methylamphetamine, also known as ‘ice’, in the Raymond Terrace area and had already arrested one other man, who was arrested in Queensland on February 18 and extradited to NSW.
Mr Johnson did not apply for bail in Raymond Terrace Local Court on Tuesday or enter any pleas and the matter was adjourned to May.
