Nerang man charged with drug offences - 3 January 2016

A 29-year-old man from Nerang will face drug trafficking and drug supply charges following a Crime and Corruption Commission (CCC) investigation.

The CCC’s ongoing investigation, codenamed Operation Amulet, has been targeting a criminal syndicate allegedly trafficking crystal methylamphetamine (ice), MDMA (ecstasy) and other drugs throughout the Gold Coast region and South East Queensland. The covert phase of the investigation closed in August 2015 and there have been previous arrests. (See previous media releases: 28 August 2015 and 12 October 2015.)

The CCC will allege the man was involved in supplying and trafficking drugs including ice, ecstasy and cocaine.

The 29-year-old man was today issued with a Notice to Appear in court to face the following charges:

  • 1 x trafficking in dangerous drugs contrary to section 5 of the Drugs Misuse Act 1986
  • 6 x supply dangerous drugs contrary to section 6 of the Drugs Misuse Act 1986.

He is expected to appear in the Southport Magistrates Court on 28 January 2016.

The investigation remains ongoing. As this matter is now before the court, the CCC is unable to comment further.
