Three men and a woman have been charged over the alleged distribution of methylamphetamine on the Gold Coast.
It comes following a lengthy three-month investigation, dubbed Operation Sierra Moonstone, which targeted the supply and trafficking of drugs with a focus on methylamphetamine and GHB.
Police said the operation came to an end last night, when three men were found in a truck at Rocklea with just over one kilogram of methylamphetamine and over $10,000 in cash.

A 44-year-old Broadbeach woman was also arrested last night after she was allegedly found with 75 grams of methylamphetamine crystals at a business in Broadbeach.
She is due to face the Southport Magistrates Court today.
Gold Coast Criminal Investigation Branch Detective Inspector Chris Ahearn said police are continuing to target and arrest people involved in the distribution and trafficking of illegal drugs across the city.
“We will continue to dismantle these organised and high-end crime groups who ply their trade in our community with dangerous and highly addicted drugs like ICE” Detective Inspector Ahearn said.
