Police officers suspended following Qld drug raids

Two serving Queensland Police Officers have been suspended following an investigation into the possession and supply of dangerous drugs.

The pair were detained after police executed search warrants across the Gold Coast and Brisbane this morning as part of Operation Sierra Edgehill.

“The operation commenced in March this year by officers from the Ethical Standards Command with support from the Organised Crime Gangs Group and the Gold Coast Police District in relation to the alleged trafficking of dangerous drugs,” Qld police said.

They confirmed a 28-year-old male senior constable from South Eastern Region and 29-year-old male senior constable from Central Region have since been suspended from duty.

The men were among nine people, which also included a former member of the Queensland Police Service, who were detained after police conducted the raids across the South East on Saturday morning.

“As this matter is under investigation by Ethical Standards Command it would be inappropriate to comment further at this stage,” police said.

“In keeping with our commitment to high standards of behaviour, transparency and accountability, we have undertaken to inform the public when an officer faces serious allegations of misconduct.

“This does not mean the allegations against the officer have been substantiated.”
