Chief Inspector Lott said a drug haul of that size was “very concerning” for police given the recent deaths at Stereosonic music festivals.

“We are very conscious of drug use at the moment and to know that quantity of drugs is in this area, obviously it’s not for personal use, so we’re in the business of shutting down that sort of business,” he said.

SEARCH: Police looked through the home after allegedly finding 1700 MDMA tablets in a runabout on Lake Macquarie.
