The raids, conducted by Queensland Police's Taskforce Maxima, targeted the alleged supply and possession of illegal drugs by associates of the Comanchero Outlaw Motorcycle Gang.

Two men have been charged - a 33-year-old Norman Park man charged with possession of dangerous drugs (cannabis) and possession property suspected of being used in the commission of a drug offence, and a 33-year-old Browns Plains man with possessing tainted property and contravene a direction.

 

Detective Acting Superintendent Craig McGrath of the Organised Crime Gangs Group said police would continue to be "unyielding in investigating and prosecuting members of OMCGs engaged in criminal activity, and disrupting and dismantling the drug supply networks that harm our community". 

Both men are expected to appear in Brisbane Magistrates Court in June.
