Riverina police have charged a man after they allegedly found drugs and explosives during the execution of two search warrants on March 5.
A rural property in Batlow was searched first where police allegedly uncovered a cannabis crop and numerous prohibited articles, including fireworks and explosives.
"The items were removed from Crown land and an adjoining private property on Cottams Road," police said in a statement.
A second search warrant was then executed on Tumbalong Road, Grahamstown, where officers allegedly found cannabis plants and an amount of dried and packaged cannabis leaf.
Police spoke to a 52-year-old man from Grahamstown before he was issued with field court attendance notices, charged with various offences.
These were handling explosives without authorisation, possessing prohibited drugs, and three counts of cultivating prohibited plants.
He is set to appear at Tumut Local Court on April 8 this year.
"The seized cannabis plants have been destroyed," police said.
The two operations involved police squads from Tumut, Rural Crime, Riverina Target Action Group and Region Enforcement units, as well as the dog squad.
Police Inspector Stephen Radford said police were pleased with the result.
"We are always keen to act on information from our community so we encourage anyone who may have information that could lead to an arrest to call us," Inspector Radford said.
Anyone with information of suspicious drug-related activities is urged to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
