Drug raid arrests

Emma Channon

NINE people were arrested and a total of 33 charges - mostly relating to drugs - were laid as raids were carried out at Warwick and Stanthorpe properties yesterday.

Two men, Andrew Clarke-Davis, 21, and Jamie-Lee O'Grady, 20, both faced Warwick Magistrates Court yesterday on six charges each and were remanded in custody until their next appearance, on May 29.

A Criminal Investigation Branch (CIB) spokesman said the arrests were a result of Operation Westport which was conducted within Warwick and Stanthorpe and surrounding areas.

"A 17-year-old female was also charged with the same offences and is due to appear later in June," he said.

The CIB spokesman said the nine arrests included three people with alleged links to the Bandidos outlaw motorcycle gang.

"At a Canning St premises police located a large amount of methamphetamine, believed to have a street value in excess of $10,000," the spokesman said.

"They also located other drugs."

A 41-year-old Amiens man was also charged as a result of the raids after a large amount of cannabis - believed to have a value in excess of $25,000 - was located at a Quirks Rd residence.

He will appear at the Stanthorpe Magistrates Court on June 19 and faces four drug charges and a weapons charge relating to a firearm not properly secured.

The CIB spokesman said the raids intercepted drugs which were destined for the streets of Warwick.

"The large amount of speed we located is now not on the streets of Warwick," he said. "That operation is now closed."

O'Grady is also due to appear at Warwick Magistrates Court on May 29 for charges relating to an alleged home invasion in Wantley St last Thursday.
