Police move on methylamphetamine network

PROPERTIES north and south of Gympie were among 24 raided yesterday as police moved to close down an alleged methylamphetamine supply network.

Police seized drugs, about $100,000 in cash and 15 firearms in the raids. Searches were carried out on properties across south-east Queensland, including the Sunshine Coast, Hervey Bay and two outlaw motorcycle gang clubhouses.

The operation specifically targeted people with identified links to the Bandidos and Lone Wolf outlaw motorcycle gang chapters on the Sunshine Coast and North Brisbane, who were allegedly involved in the supply and production of methylamphetamine.
