CCC executes search warrant at Logan City Council chambers

The Crime and Corruption Commission has served a search warrant on Logan City Council in relation to its investigations into the Council and Mayor Luke Smith.

At least six CCC officers walked into the council's Wembley Rd building Monday just after 1pm.

One officer interrupted a top-level budget discussion attended by senior executives and councillors. Mayor Smith was not at the meeting.

A CCC officer told a stunned meeting the warrant was for 46 areas of concern in which the commission was looking for information.

Details of the search warrant were shown to the meeting. Some matters related to the CCC's Operation Belcarra, while others referred were related to more recent incidents.

The meeting was told some of the topics of inquiry were related to the Council's relationship with The Lakes development at Carbrook, SKL Cables' Carole Ave project at Springwood; and Golden Travel, a travel agency which had arranged an overseas trip for the council last year.

Mayor Luke Smith said he would "happily assist with any investigation, as I have always done".
