Police charge man with over 90 drug offences at Kingaroy

Murgon detectives have charged an alleged drug trafficker with 91 offences and seized over $30,000 worth of illicit substances following the closure of Operation Knuckle yesterday.

The operation culminated in the execution of 31 search warrants and 34 people being charged with 166 drug offences with more than $30,000 worth of drugs being taken off the streets.

On June 30 a 24-year-old man was arrested in Kingaroy and subsequently charged with one count each of trafficking a dangerous drug (ICE/Amphetamine), receiving proceeds from drug trafficking, possessing property used in the commission of a drug offence and a further 88 counts of supplying a dangerous drug.

He is due to appear in Cherbourg Magistrates Court today.

Detectives will allege that between July 2019 and June 2020 the man supplied ten people in Kingaroy with various quantities of ICE over an extended period.

Detective Acting Superintendent Mat Kelly said Operation Knuckle represented the ongoing commitment of police in the South Burnett District to target serious drug offenders and reduce drug related crimes in the community.
