FOUR men accused of trafficking more than two tonnes of high-grade cannabis across the Queensland-NSW border in the space of four months have been arrested following a major police operation in Brisbane.
Operation Radnor Foxcatcher was formed to investigate the syndicate back in May after officers allegedly found 100 kilograms of cannabis in a 24-year-old man’s car at Worongary on the Gold Coast.
Police officially wrapped up the protracted operation on Tuesday and arrested a further three men, two aged 28 and the other 48, in a number of raids across Brisbane.

All four men have been charged with multiple drug trafficking and possession of dangerous drugs offences.
The three men arrested in yesterday’s operation have been remanded in custody to reappear in the Richlands Magistrates Court on January 8.
