Custodial officer and two other men charged with trafficking drugs and other offences - 6 December 2018

Three people have been charged this afternoon with trafficking dangerous drugs and other serious criminal offences by the Crime and Corruption Commission (CCC) after an investigation into allegations staff from a privately operated prison were involved in sourcing and supplying steroids. These criminal charges are a continuation of operational activity relating to the CCC’s Taskforce Flaxton.

The CCC executed two search warrants this morning at residential addresses in Leichardt and Banyo.

A 26-year-old Leichardt man who is currently employed as a custodial officer with a private operator has been charged with:

  • 1 x trafficking dangerous drugs contrary to section 5 of the Drugs Misuse Act 1986.
  • 1 x possession of a dangerous drug contrary to section 9 of the Drugs Misuse Act 1986
  • 1 x unlawful possession of weapons Category R contrary to section 50(1)(c)(i) of the Weapons Act 1990

A 29-year-old Leichardt man who is a former employee of a private operator  has been charged with:

  • 1 x trafficking dangerous drugs contrary to section 5 of the Drugs Misuse Act 1986
  • 1 x possession of a dangerous drug contrary to section 9 of the Drugs Misuse Act 1986
  • 1 x possession of property suspected of being proceeds of an offence contrary to section 10A(1)(d) of the Drugs Misuse Act 1986

A 25-year-old Banyo man been charged with:

  • 1 x trafficking dangerous drugs contrary to section 5 of the Drugs Misuse Act 1986
  • 1 x possession of a dangerous drug contrary to section 9 of the Drugs Misuse Act 1986
  • 1 x unlawful possession of weapons Category R contrary to section 50(1)(c)(i) of the Weapons Act 1990
  • 1 x possession of property suspected of being proceeds of an offence contrary to section 10A(1)(d) of the Drugs Misuse Act 1986
  • 1 x possessing a restricted item contrary to section 67(1) of the Weapons Act 1990

The three men have been remanded in custody and will appear in the Brisbane Magistrates Court tomorrow morning 7 December 2018.

As the investigation remains ongoing, and these matters are now before the court, the CCC will not be commenting further.

The CCC is an independent agency combating major crime and reducing corruption for the benefit of the Queensland community.
