trafficking involving the Outlaws and Rebels outlaw motorcycle
The investigation led officers from the
Whitsundays to the Gold Coast where the 38-year-old Nerang man was
arrested on six charges.
He was charged with drug trafficking, trafficking
in MDMA and cannabis, supply drugs, possession of things used in the
commission of a crime, possession of proceeds of crime and one
charge of importation of a border-controlled drug.
Detective Acting Inspector Tim Leadbetter said it
was a good result to get the trafficker off the streets.
“The charges laid against this man are an
indication of his alleged standing in the criminal underworld,” he
“The man went to great lengths to hide his
criminal activities with encrypted devices.”
The investigation is ongoing and more properties
on the Coast and in North Queensland may be raided.
The man charged is due to appear in the Southport
Magistrates Court this morning.
