Police have arrested and charged a further two men with fraud following a 14-month long investigation by officers from the QPS Queensland Racing Crime Squad.

The charges are the result of Operation Quebec Creed, an investigation into suspected doping practices by a network of people involved in the thoroughbred racing industry.

A 49-year-old man from Forestdale has been arrested and charged with:

  • one count of aggravated fraud

he was bailed to appear at Brisbane Magistrates Court on July 16, 2019.

A 41-year-old male from Lockyer Waters, has also been arrested with one count of:

  • aggravated fraud

and bailed to appear at Gatton Magistrates Court on July 15, 2019.

It is alleged that both men enabled and facilitated the administration of unregistered horse supplements by a third party, which resulted in dishonestly obtaining a financial benefit through thoroughbred race winnings.

These charges follow yesterday’s arrest of Toowoomba’s Ben Currie.
