POLICE have allegedly seized 25-kilogram of cannabis and $149,000 cash from an Alexandra Hills address.
A Queensland Police Service spokesperson said the items were seized last week as part of a 12-month operation targeting drug offences in Brisbane's bayside, which began in January last year.
The spokesperson said officers from Capalaba’s Tactical Crime Squad had charged four people, including two Redlands men, with drug trafficking and other drugs-related offences.
"Police executed a total of 14 search warrants on addresses throughout Brisbane’s greater bayside where it will be alleged 25 kilograms of cannabis was located, including $149,000 cash, at one Alexandra Hills address last week," the spokesperson said.
"A 50-year-old Alexandra Hills man, 61-year-old man from Cairns, 47-year-old Wakerley man and a 50-year-old Redland Bay man were arrested as a result and charged with drug trafficking and other drug-related offences."
The four are expected to appear at Cleveland Magistrates Court next month.
The spokesperson said 30 people had been charged on a total of 308 drugs and firearm-related offences, including 168 counts of supplying dangerous drugs, as part of the operation.
"A total of 39 kilograms of cannabis, amphetamine and performance enhancing drugs, with a street value in excess of $284,000 and $184,000 in cash, has been seized by police," the spokesperson said.
Capalaba Tactical Crime Squad officer in charge Senior Sergeant Warren Piket said the operation, Operation Quebec Crust, had caused a major disruption to the supply and distribution of dangerous drugs on Brisbane’s Bayside.
“We continue to encourage members of the public to provide information in relation to drug activity in their community anonymously to police,” he said.
