A man has been charged with serious drug trafficking offences on the Gold Coast, after police made a shock discovery of over $1 million worth of high-grade cannabis allegedly in the back of his van.

The man was busted when police pulled over an unregistered vehicle travelling along Guineas Creed Road in Currumbin Waters on Saturday at around 12.45pm.

Upon searching the van, police allegedly found a whopping 136kg of cannabis packed in cardboard boxes.


The drugs found have a street value of approximately $1.15 million.

The driver of the van, a 22-year-old Elanora man, has been charged with a string of serious offences.

He faces charges including trafficking dangerous drugs, possessing dangerous drugs, possessing property suspected of having been used in connection with the commission of a drug offence (vehicle) and driving a motor vehicle without a licence.

He’ll face Southport Magistrates Court today.
