Police have charged two people following an investigation which led to the location of 24,000 MDMA pills in North Brisbane yesterday.
Detectives from Fortitude Valley Criminal Investigation Branch executed a search warrant at an address in Albion around 3pm on Sunday afternoon. It will be alleged during a search of the property, officers located five large plastic bags containing 7.3kg of pills believed to be MDMA (Ecstasy).
The bags are believed to contain around 24,000 pills with an estimated street value of up to $1 million.
A 28-year-old woman and a 27-year-old man who were taken into custody at the scene have both been charged with possession of dangerous drugs and are due to appear in Brisbane Magistrates Court this morning.
Detective Inspector Glen Farmer, City Valley Crime Group said the location of such a large amount of dangerous drugs was concerning for police.
“These drugs are not regulated and can contain substances which have a harmful effect on your health and in some cases have resulted in fatal consequences for users,” Detective Inspector Famer said.
“With Schoolies starting on the weekend the arrest of two people and the removal a significant amount of dangerous drugs from circulation helps make for a safer community.”
