PHOTOS: 11 arrested in drug raids, man accused of trafficking
ELEVEN people have been arrested after a series of drug raids by Bundaberg Police.
Criminal Investigations Branch Acting Detective Senior Sergeant Andrew Tucker said six search warrants were executed on Wednesday, resulting in seven people arrested on 18 drugs charges, including one man accused of drug trafficking.
But the tally increased later on Wednesday when officers were called to a Boundary St home where it is alleged a drug lab was discovered.
"At about 8pm (Wednesday) night, police were called to a disturbance at the Boundary Street residence," Act Det Sgt Tucker said.
"Police attended and entered the dwelling and conducted investigations into the initial call.
"During these enquiries, they have located a drug lab which is believed to have been used in the production of methylamphetamine."
Act Det Sgt Tucker said four people were charged as a result of the alleged find.
"Police then declared a crime scene and detained a number of occupants of the residence," he said.
"As a result, a number of people have been charged with various drug-related offences."
A team of police specialists from Brisbane attended the crime scene yesterday to remove the alleged laboratory.
Act Det Sgt Tucker said Wednesday's six drug raids were part of ongoing investigations into drug-related crime in the region.
The man accused of drug trafficking yesterday faced Bundaberg Magistrates Court but did not apply for bail and his matter was adjourned until February 20.
