Police have seized about $500,000 worth of drugs across the Sunshine Coast and Wide Bay Burnett region after a five-day operation.

Hydroponic growing systems, valued at $56,000 and used to produce cannabis, were discovered by police at 13 addresses and have since been destroyed.

Officers seized 156 cannabis plants and 12 kilograms of dried cannabis in the raids.

They have charged 17 people with 67 drug and weapons offences after last week executing 18 search warrants in Nambour, Mount Coolum, Glass House Mountains, Maleny and Glenwood.


The weapons offences relate to a sawn-off .22 bolt-action rimfire rifle and a crossbow, both of which were seized by police during the operation.

Detective Acting Superintendent Troy Pukallus of the Drug and Serious Crime Group said the drugs were being produced for local distribution and the operation had ensured "the community is safer ahead of the holiday period".

Acting Superintendent Pukallus said the investigation identified a surge in the sourcing of hydroponic equipment for cannabis production.

A 47-year-old Maleny man was charged with five counts of supplying dangerous drugs and will face the Nambour Magistrates Court in January.

thats a .22 but there are bolt action shotguns around but very expensive and more suited for target shooters imo

"Acting Superintendent fuckhead said the investigation identified a surge in the sourcing of hydroponic equipment for cannabis production."

this is the most interesting bit ^^^

In others words, it's likely they've managed to get the hydro/light gear supplier to squeal. That LED setup had a huge ammount of $$$ invested into it. Probably some DC who couldn't help but gob off to how big he was going to the Hydro guy, or whoever.

Or X cops running hydro shops 🤔 ?

It's a old tactic that apparently QLD cops had tried in the past. But never seen anyone produce some facts that it has occured.

Though i do have it on good authority that one particular GC hydro supplier has opened his books up previously to the fuzz. The prosocuting officer apparently called in the hydro guy into court to give evidence
