Queenslanders slapped with hundreds of drugs charges

Police have sent out a warning to drug suppliers, following the closure of a three-month investigation which netted dozens of people.

Since July, Toowoomba detectives have swooped on a number of properties, charging 72 people with 670 primarily drug related offences.

During the course of Operation Quebec Midway they located amphetamines, cash ($96,000) and 13 illegal firearms.

It’s alleged they found $40,000 cash at the home of a 29-year-old man who is now facing 73 counts of supplying a dangerous drug.

Two other men, aged 42 and 46 were each charged respectively with 70 and 87 counts of supplying dangerous drugs and will face court in November.

In a statement, Detective Senior Sergeant Paul McCusker, OIC of Toowoomba Criminal Investigation Branch, said although Operation Quebec Midway had closed police continue to receive information in relation to the supply of dangerous drugs, and these are actively being investigated.
