A man’s been charged after quantities of drugs and weapons were found at a Currumbin Waters residence last week.

Detectives from the Gold Coast CIB executed a search warrant at an address on Tierney Drive on Thursday May 23, where they found dangerous drugs including LSD, methylamphetamines, hashish, cannabis and other drug paraphernalia.

Police say they also found a revolver handgun, as well as ammunition and two handmade automatic weapons during the search.


A 42-year-old man from Currumbin Waters was charged with three counts of possession of a dangerous drug, three counts of unlawful possession of a weapon, and a count each of unlawful manufacturing of weapons, unlawful possession of drug utensils, possession of things suspected of being used in a crime and unlawful possession of explosives.

He’ll front Southport Court on June 6.

Detective Inspector Brendan Smith from Gold Coast CIB says the arrest typifies our ongoing efforts to target those involved in weapon and drug crime.

“The danger posed the to the community by automatic weapons cannot be overstated. The removal of any unlawful weapons from the streets make the community safer and we will be unrelenting in our efforts,” Detective Inspector Smith said.
