Brisbane doctor charged with trafficking drugs to bikies

A Brisbane doctor has been charged, after allegedly supplying drugs to bikies as part of a trafficking operation.

Police executed multiple search warrants across Brisbane yesterday, including at two medical practices in Fortitude Valley and Chermside.

They seized quantities of steroids, prescription drugs and a large sum of cash.

Detectives allege that a 52-year-old doctor was involved in supplying the drugs without prescription directly to members of an Outlaw Motorcycle Gang, in order to facilitate the on sale of the medication for profit.

“We will be alleging that these drugs were supplied to gang members by a medical practitioner who knew they were going to be on sold within the community for profit,” Detective Inspector Larissa Miller said.

“The Organised Crime Gangs group continues to target OMCG members and those who facilitate their offending, including people who hold professional positions of trust within our community.”

The man has since been taken into custody and charged with trafficking and supply of restrictions medications.

He’s expected to appear in the Brisbane Magistrates Court today.

Would not be surprised if he was threatened with his life to force him into this abhorrent crime.

Normal people would go to the police if they are being blackmailed
