Detective Acting Inspector Russell Jones from Taskforce Maxima said the search and result highlighted police efforts in targeting criminal gangs.

“Today’s results reinforce the ongoing efforts of the QPS to target criminal gangs and drug supply on the Gold Coast,” Detective Acting Inspector Jones said.

“As seen by the nature of the drugs and cash seized, it is clear these gangs operate out of greed with no concern for the welfare of the community.

“Investigations are ongoing and these people need to understand we will be unrelenting in targeting their unlawful activities.”
