Darling Downs Drug Operation, Quebec Trawler, continues…

Police have seized illicit drugs and arrested 121 people on 377 charges while conducting a operation across the Darling Downs.

Police say Operation Quebec Trawler commenced last month, targeting drug offenders including those involved in the use, supply and distribution of ICE and Cannabis.

Officer in Charge of the Darling Downs District Tactical Crime Squad, Senior Sergeant Matt Howard says all officers across the District are working extremely hard to disrupt drug use.

“The use of illicit substances has a detrimental, flow-on effect to the general community.”

“Our local community has provided us with the information we need to tackle this network and get these drugs off the street.”

“Clearly the people in the Darling Downs do not want these dangerous and destructive substances in their towns and are working with us to remove them.”

Operation Quebec Trawler is an ongoing operation involving various police resources including the Darling Downs Tactical Crime Squad, General Duties Police and Detectives.

Total charges:
• 181 persons charged with 545 offences including 2 trafficking, 122 supply dangerous drug and 147 possess dangerous drugs.
• Drug seized – Cannabis, Methamphetamines and amphetamines.
• Over $15000 in cash seized
• Weapons seized include a pen gun and semi-automatic weapons
