Police officers from Warwick Criminal Investigation Branch (CIB) have closed a major drug network in South West Queensland.
Operation Barracuda coordinated by Warwick CIB and conducted with the assistance of Stanthorpe CIB, Goondiwindi CIB, Toowoomba CIB, Tactical Crime Squad Toowoomba, Brisbane Dog Squad and general duties police saw more than 30 search warrants executed between September 3 and September 6 at locations within the Warwick patrol group including Goondiwindi, Allora, Killarney, Inglewood, Stanthorpe, Talwood and Leyburn.
Detective Inspector Lew Strohfeldt of the Darling Downs Crime Group said this is an example of how a collaborative effort can work to stop crime in the community.
“This collaboration between our squads and local police continues to identify and disrupt people committing offences across the region for a range of criminal offences,” Detective Inspector Strohfeldt said.
“Our local community has provided us with the information we need to tackle this network and get these drugs off the street.
“Clearly the people in the Darling Downs do not want these dangerous and destructive substances in their towns and are working with us to remove them.”
