Alleged drug trafficker caught with 271 grams of meth

AN alleged drug trafficker has been arrested and charged after police allegedly found more than 270 grams of crystal meth and two guns at a house north of Brisbane.

Officers raided a home at Rothwell twice – first on September 21 and again on October 3 – and allegedly found 271 grams of methylamphetamine and a stash of cash.

Police said two illegal handguns and ammunition were also found during the searches.


A man was arrested at the address and charged with two counts each of possessing dangerous drugs and unlawful possession of weapons.

He was also charged with possessing ammunition and property suspected of being the proceeds of an offence under the Drugs Misuse Act.

The Rothwell man appeared in Redcliffe Magistrates Court on October 4 where he was refused bail and ordered to reappear on November 20.

He has since been further charged with receiving or possessing property obtained from trafficking or supplying dangerous drugs.

The accused will be brought back into court on Monday to answer to the latest charge.
