AN APPLICATION has been made to the Supreme Court to freeze the assets of alleged drug trafficker Thomas Edward Martin.

Martin was arrested last month when police raided properties on the Southern Downs as part of an investigation into the 1974 murders of Barbara McCulkin and her two daughters.

Martin's assets that the state will attempt to freeze under proceeds of crime laws include three properties, cash seized during he raids, his bank accounts and a Holden ute.

The state alleges Martin has "engaged in serious crime-related activities".

Martin has been identified by police as an associate of Warwick man Vincent O'Dempsey, a person of interest in the murders of the McCulkins.
