Major Drugs Bust In Queensland Sees 121 People Arrested

121 people are facing more than 300 charges over a major drug operation in the Darling Downs, west of Brisbane.

Operation Quebec Trawler commenced last month, targeting drug offenders including those involved in the use, supply and distribution of ICE and Cannabis.

A large amount of drugs were seized, along with $10,000 in cash and property worth more than $15,000, including a bill counter.


Officer in Charge of the Darling Downs District Tactical Crime Squad, Senior Sergeant Matt Howard said all officers are working extremely hard to disrupt drug use.

“The use of illicit substances has a detrimental, flow-on effect to the general community,” Senior Sergeant Howard said.

“Our local community has provided us with the information we need to tackle this network and get these drugs off the street.

Operation Quebec Trawler is an ongoing operation involving various police resources including the Darling Downs Tactical Crime Squad, general Duties officers and detectives.
