VIDEO: Man charged trafficking, supply to minor after raid

A LITANY of charges have been laid on a 29-year-old Tannum Sands man following a drug raid at a property at 11.40am today.

Police dog squads were flanked by Australian Border Force personnel as they stormed the property on Latrobe St, just doors down from Tannum Sands State School.

A police vehicle parked in the driveway of the property, while six other police vehicles --- including some that were unmarked --- were parked on the street outside.

Waves of police dogs entered the property over the course of the raid.

A police spokesman said drugs seized included cannabis and amphetamine.

A tattooed man, who was inside the property with police for several hours, was seen being escorted from the property, handcuffed, about 3pm today.

And late last night a man, although it's unknown if it's the same man, was charged with several offences including trafficking a dangerous drug and two counts of supplying a dangerous drug to a minor. He is expected to appear at Gladstone Magistrates Court this morning.

Police wouldn't confirm the quantity of any drugs found but the spokesman said "specialist police" were still searching the property last night. "A crime scene has been declared at the house and specialist police will continue to process the house."

A parent said Tannum Sands State School had advised parents from using the crossing on Latrobe St today.
