A 31-year-old man from Burleigh and a 21-year-old woman from Gaven were arrested.

The man has since been charged with 12 offences including weapons and drug possession while the woman has been issued with a Notice to Appear charged with unlawful possession of a weapon.

Senior Sergeant Mat Kelly, Officer in Charge of Gold Coast Rapid Action said the intercept is an excellent result.

“This is an example of how police use intelligence driven strategies to combat crime. Last night’s arrest highlights the success of targeted patrols. A number of weapons and drugs are off of our streets and that is a good win for police and the broader community.” Senior Sergeant Kelly said.
