Police raid with a twist

CANNABIS with a street market value of more than $120,000 was one of a number of hauls of illicit drugs resulting from police raids east of Warwick on Anzac Day.

Multiple charges followed the execution of search warrants on properties in rural areas by detectives early yesterday morning.

A Warwick Police Criminal Investigation Branch (CIB) spokesman told the Daily News the search warrants had been carried out at properties in the Killarney, Loch Lomond and Mt Colliery areas and led to numerous charges being laid.

The spokesman said a male and his female de facto partner had been located at a Mt Colliery property in possession of approximately five kilograms of cannabis.

The pair is due to appear in the Warwick Magistrates Court on May 29.

In another raid, a 40-year-old male was found on a property on the Warwick-Killarney Rd in possession of cannabis, unlicensed firearms, amphetamines and illegal steroids.

"This person was subsequently charged with the production of a dangerous drug," the CIB spokesman said.

"They were also found to be in possession of two firearms without the required licence, along with a Category H prohibited weapon in the form of a silencer.

"A quantity of amphetamines and illegal testosterone was also located in the possession of this person, who had attempted to dispose of some items in the toilet when police arrived."

The 40-year-old is likewise due to appear in the Warwick Magistrates Court on May 29.

The CIB spokesman said police continued to investigate a spate of thefts of rural property in districts surrounding Warwick in recent months.

He said police had in recent days located a spraying device which they will allege was stolen from the Killarney Recreation Centre.

"One person has been issued with a notice to appear in court for breaking and entering and another person for receiving stolen property," the spokesman said.

The charges follow the conviction of two men in the Warwick Magistrates Court last month for stealing fuel and other items from local properties, after they were detained by a property owner.
