Zilzie man to face string of charges from drug trafficking

AN 18-year-old Zilzie man has been charged with drug and weapons offences as part of an ongoing investigation into a drug trafficking syndicate.

The investigation targeted a criminal syndicate allegedly trafficking crystal methylamphetamine (ice), MDMA (ecstasy) and other drugs throughout the Gold Coast region and south-east Queensland.

Yesterday the man was charged with nine offences, including the trafficking of dangerous drugs and the supply of dangerous drugs.

He is scheduled to appear in the Rockhampton Magistrates Court on November 16, where the Crime and Corruption Commission will allege the man was part of a Central Queensland-based drug syndicate which sourced methylamphetamine and MDMA from a person who had links to the Gold-Coast-based syndicate. The CCC will also allege he supplied firearms and ammunition.

In addition, a 17-year-old Zilzie man and an 18-year-old Coowonga man were charged with one count each of possessing a dangerous drug (ice).

They are scheduled to appear in the Yeppoon Children's Court and Rockhampton Magistrates Court in November.
