A TUMBARUMBA man has been arrested in Cootamundra for allegedly dealing drugs and slapped with a fine for travelling 150 kilometres away from his home without a reasonable excuse.
A NSW police spokesperson said police responded to reports of a man allegedly dealing drugs at a Hurley Street hotel in Cootamundra about 7.40pm yesterday.
Police attended and located a clear bag that contained methylamphetamine.
Following inquiries, the spokesperson said police stopped a Ford Falcon on Hurley Street where they arrested a 36-year-old man and seized cash alleged to be the proceeds of the crime.
He was charged with supply prohibited drug and deal with the proceeds of crime.
"The man, who resides 150 kilometres away in Tumbarumba, was unable to provide reasonable excuse for being away from his registered address and - in addition to his charges - was issued with a penalty infringement notice," they said.
The man was granted conditional bail and is due to appear at Cootamundra Local Court on May 4.
