Three arrests, $2.3 million in drugs seized in Brisbane

Police have charged three people with drug trafficking after yesterday searching two Brisbane premises where weapons and $2.3 million worth of drugs were seized.

Yesterday detectives from the State Crime Command’s Major Organised Crime Squad executed a search warrant on an Oxley storage facility where four kilograms of MDMA, 30 boxes of diazepam and two handguns were found inside a storage shed.

A 24-year-old Brisbane woman attending the storage shed was found carrying nine kilograms of methylamphetamine and one kilogram of cocaine concealed in suitcases, with an approximate value of $1.5 million.

During the subsequent search of a second address, a Brisbane city hotel room, police located 60 kilograms of cannabis inside suitcases, along with one kilogram of methylamphetamine, a quantity of cocaine and an unknown quantity of cash believed to be approximately $100,000.

Detectives charged three people, a woman and two men, who police will allege were involved in the organised trafficking of drugs that were flown into Brisbane from Sydney.

The 24-year-old woman has been charged with:

• one count each of trafficking and possession of dangerous drugs

• one count of unlawful possession of weapons

• three counts of possession of dangerous drugs

• One count of possessing proceeds of drug trafficking

The two men, a 29-year old and 30-year-old from Brisbane have been charged with:

• one count each of trafficking and possession of dangerous drugs

• one count of unlawful possession of weapons

• one count of possession of proceeds of drug trafficking.

All are due to appear in Brisbane Magistrates Court today.
