Coominya Greyhound racing participants charged with drug offences

Two greyhound racing participants and another person who is not a licensee have been charged with 13 drug related offences after Queensland Racing Crime Squad detectives and the Queensland Racing Integrity Commission (QRIC) Integrity Investigations Team (IIT) executed a search warrant at a Coominya property yesterday, Queensland Police say.

Two women aged 53 and 45 and a 66 year-old man have been charged with offences including allegedly supplying dangerous drugs, possession of dangerous drugs, possession of restricted drugs and other drug offences.

One of the greyhound racing participants was charged in relation to administering the dangerous drug diazepam to a racing greyhound.

QRIC Commissioner Ross Barnett said the administration of drugs that are only available on prescription for humans is reckless and potentially dangerous.
