Drug trafficking arrests close interstate network in Brisbane, QLD

Detectives from the State Crime Command’s Drug and Serious Crime Group have charged four men following a joint investigation into an alleged organised drug network with interstate links, Queensland Police say.

Yesterday, police officially closed Operation Radnor Foxcatcher, a protracted investigation with search warrants carried out on a number of Brisbane addresses.

This investigation targeted a number of people involved in the interstate trafficking of cannabis between Sydney and Brisbane.

The joint investigation with the Australian Criminal Intelligence Commission commenced as a result of the intercept of a 24-year-old Doolandella man in Worongary on May 21 this year.

At the time detectives searched a vehicle and located 100 kilograms of high grade cannabis.

Ongoing investigations identified other members of the group and police will allege that between February and May this year the syndicate were responsible for the trafficking of 2.2 tonnes of cannabis.

To date, four men have been arrested including a 28-year-old from Durack, 28-year-old from Inala and 48-year-old from Durack.

All have been charged with drug trafficking and possession of dangerous drugs offences.

Three of the four men have been remanded in custody to reappear in the Richlands Magistrates Court on January 8.
