Gold Coast man charged after significant drug bust

A man’s been charged after police found a significant amount of drugs at a Gold Coast home.

Gold Coast police executed a search warrant at a unit in Varsity Lakes just after midnight on Sunday night, finding scores of cocaine, MDMA, steroids and illegal prescription medication.

Almost $7,000 was also found at the address on Varsity Parade.


Police say the occupant wasn’t home at the time of the search, though subsequent investigations led detectives to the 23-year-old man the next day.

He was arrested on Tuesday, and has since been charged with five counts of possessing dangerous drugs and one count each of supplying dangerous drugs and possessing property suspected of being the proceeds of a drug offence.

He is scheduled to appear at the Southport Magistrates Court on December 9.
