POLICE have shut down a drug production and trafficking operation in Goodna and seized a significant amount of drugs following raids conducted over the weekend.
Police executed six search warrants on addresses in Goodna, Darra, Oxley, and Acacia Ridge.
Police located six cannabis grow houses in suburban residences and seized a total of 459 cannabis plants, 10kg of dried cannabis and equipment used in the production of cannabis.
Three people were charged with 41 offences including producing a dangerous drug, possessing dangerous drugs, and possessing things used in the commission of a drug offence.
Police say the total value of drugs seized is estimated at $2.35m.
The three people charged are all unlawful non-citizens and have been detained by the Department of Immigration and Border Protection ahead of their removal from Australia once legal matters are finalised.
Detective Inspector Mark Slater from the Drug and Serious Crime Group said this was a significant and sophisticated drug production and distribution network.
"It follows on from raids in December 2015 when over 20 similar type grow houses were located by police in a joint operation involving the Australian Crime Commission, Australian Border Force, Australian Federal Police and the QPS," he said
"The Drug and Serious Crime Group continues to focus its attention on major drug producers and traffickers in order to reduce the supply of dangerous drugs into the community."
