Three people have been charged following the discovery of a hydroponic drug setup in Oxenford.

The illegal setup was discovered in the bedroom of a Palmerston Drive property during a police raid on last Saturday (February 18).

Another search of a property in Wunburra Crescent, Pacific Pines, uncovered a quantity of cannabis.

Police believe the two finds are linked.

A 47-year-old man and a 54-year-old woman, both from Oxenford, will face court on April 3, charged with possess a dangerous drug, produce a dangerous drug, possess utensil and possess things.

A 29-year-old Pacific Pines man has been charged with possess a dangerous drug, produce a dangerous drug and possess things.

He is due to face court on March 24.

Senior Sergeant Mat Kelly from Gold Coast Rapid Action and Patrols said tip-offs from the public led to the arrests.

“This is a clear demonstration of information from the public being supplied to police and helping us remove dangerous drugs and drug equipment from the community," he said.

“I encourage any members of the community who have any information about illegal drugs or illegal activities in our community to continue to report it to police."
