DRUG RAID: Laidley cops search multiple homes, eight charged

EIGHT homes in the Laidley catchment area have been raided by police, with numerous bongs, plants and drugs found.

Laidley’s OIC senior sergeant Regan Draheim said the majority of raids came from information received from the public.

“Whilst police didn’t find a great deal of drugs at these locations there as evidence to suggest that drug use has been quite common at the locations where the warrants were executed,” he said.

“It’s very disappointing to see continued drug use by these people, and hopefully the action by police will help to reduce the amount of drugs being used and supplied to others in the future.”

Laidley police conducted the raids on Wednesday, October 13, and Thursday, October 14.
