Operation Storm

In May 2012, the CMC closed the covert phase of an 18-month investigation codenamed Operation Storm. The investigation dismantled a major drug distribution network, primarily trafficking in heroin, operating from the Sunshine Coast to the Gold Coast.

Based on conservative estimates, it is believed that the network was responsible for distributing at least 20kg of heroin, with an estimated street value of $25 million, dating back to 2006.

The investigation commenced in December 2010 and involved collaboration with the Queensland Police Service, New South Wales Drug Squad and the Australian Federal Police (Serious and Organised Crime team).
