A SEMI-automatic firearm, silencer, ammunition, 82g of cannabis and about 14g of amphetamines were seized during two separate police raids on Wednesday, which led to three arrests and various charges being laid.

As a result of a search, 78 ecstasy tablets were seized, along with amphetamines, utensils for distribution and more than $6000 in cash.

A 24-year-old man has been charged with various offences and will appear in Gladstone Magistrates Court on August 20.

Police were also called to a disturbance at a Kent St address and, upon entry, located a number of items of interest.

These included a semi-automatic .22 rifle and silencer, eight canisters of pepper spray, a knife, 82g of cannabis and about 7g of amphetamines.

A 27-year-old male and 19-year-old female were taken into custody and charged with a number of weapon and drug-related offences.

The pair will appear in Gladstone Magistrates Court on August 20.

All three people arrested during the raids have been released on bail.
