Police to crackdown on meth-addicted parents

MORE and more vulnerable children are being exposed to crystal meth – or ICE – in Logan, police say.

The Logan District Child Protection and Investigation Unit will soon launch ‘Operation Velodrome’ to target the supply of methamphetamine across the district.

It comes after the Queensland Police Service received intel indicating a growing number of underage children were being exposed to the dangerous drug.

Police said they will “identify and help children” who were being neglected by their meth-addicted parents.

“As part of the operation, officers will take appropriate action based on reliable information provided by the general public,” a Queensland Police spokesperson said.

“The aim of the operation is to reduce the availability of methamphetamine in the area, hopefully breaking the cycle of addiction.”

Anyone with information regarding the supply of meth in Logan, or who may suspect a child of using the drug or being neglected by their parents is urged to call Crime Stoppers on 1800 333 000.
