Man charged with string of drug offences after release from hospital

Police said an officer fired their gun and hit the driver in the arm as he allegedly fled.

The 29-year-old was eventually arrested on nearby Hogbin Drive without incident and taken to Coffs Harbour Health Campus hospital in a stable condition.

Yesterday, police took him to the local station and charged him with a range of drug offences, including several counts of supplying an indictable quantity and two counts of recklessly dealing with more than $5000 in crime proceeds.

He’s due in the Port Macquarie Local Court today and the investigation into the shooting continues.
