Major Drug Operation Darling Downs QPS

Police have seized illicit drugs and arrested 121 people on 377 charges while conducting a major operation across the Darling Downs.

Operation Quebec Trawler commenced last month, targeting drug offenders including those involved in the use, supply and distribution of ICE and Cannabis.

Officer in Charge of the Darling Downs District Tactical Crime Squad, Senior Sergeant Matt Howard said all officers are working extremely hard to disrupt drug use.


“The use of illicit substances has a detrimental, flow-on effect to the general community,” Senior Sergeant Howard said.

“Our local community has provided us with the information we need to tackle this network and get these drugs off the street.

“Clearly the people in the Darling Downs do not want these dangerous and destructive substances in their towns and are working with us to remove them.”

Operation Quebec Trawler is an ongoing operation involving various police resources including the Darling Downs Tactical Crime Squad, general Duties officers and detectives.


Operational Results:

  • 121 arrests with 377 offences including 1 drug trafficking charge, 86 supply dangerous drug and 90 possess dangerous drugs.
    • Drug seized – Methamphetamine, Cannabis
    • Over $10,000 in cash seized
