Police raid stops ICE hitting streets of Surfers just hours ahead of Schoolies

A TEENAGE girl has been arrested after a stash of meth and shotgun were found in a Surfers Paradise hotel, just hours before thousands of screaming Schoolies flood the party precinct. 

Nine News journalist Brendan Wolfe reports three people, including a 17-year-old girl were arrested after police stormed the Mantra Hotel around 9am this morning.

During a search of the trio’s hotel room, it’s alleged police found a large stash of the drug ICE destined for the streets of Surfers, a shotgun and 18 stolen mobile phones and jewellery. 


Two other men, believed aged 21 and 30, were also taken into police custody. 

Police are said to be very happy with the result, with more than 25,000 school leavers expected to flood Surfers from tomorrow.
