Is this the pool guy or the pill guy?

A GOLD Coast pool installer has been charged with trafficking MDMA after police allegedly found more than $160,000 in cash and more than 35,000 pills at a Gaven property this week.

Adam Lee Bartolo, 34, briefly faced the Southport Magistrates Court yesterday charged with trafficking, producing and possession of dangerous drugs following an early morning police raid at a Violet Way property on Wednesday.

It is believed Bartolo lived at the Gaven address with his parents and property records show the suburban home has been owned by Francis and Pamela Bartolo since 1994.

Police searched a shipping container at the back of the Gaven home and allegedly found several bags in plastic buckets which contained 35,600 MDMA pills. The pills allegedly weighed more than 10kg.
