Throwing beer bottles attracts Police, leads to drug arrests

A RAUCOUS party at a Surfers Paradise highrise has attracted the attention of Police, and landed four people in hot water.

Officers were called to the Enderley Avenue unit around 7.25pm on Saturday, following reports people were throwing beer bottles from the balcony.

Hotel management led Police to the unit, where they were refused entry. Officers eventually entered the unit, where they allegedly noticed drug utensils.


A search of the property allegedly uncovered 2200 MDMA (Methylenedioxymethamphetamine) tablets as well as 20 grams of crushed tablets.

Subsequent police investigation led officers to two other units within the complex, one via an adjoining door. These were also searched.

A 19-year-old man from Tanah Merah was taken into custody. He will front Southport Magistrates Court tomorrow charged with two counts of supplying a dangerous drug and one count of possession of a dangerous drug.

Notices to Appear were issued to a 23-year-old Slacks Creek man, a 20-year-old Loganholme man and a 20-year-old Tanah Merah woman.

A Slacks Creek man, 23, was charged with supplying dangerous drugs to face court on October 8.

While a woman from Tanah Merah and a Loganholme man, both 20, were charged with possession of a dangerous drug and ordered to appear in court on October 14 and 27 respectively.

Acting Chief Superintendent Michelle Stenner praised the work of the uniformed officers in uncovering a significant amount of MDMA, both in tablet and powder form.

“Nothing is ever routine or ordinary in policing. You never know where a ‘simple enquiry’ will lead, where a knock on the door will take you,” Superintendent Stenner said.

“The officers did a great job in uncovering and investigating this case.”
