CCC officers raid Logan council

THE Crime and Corruption Commission has served a search warrant on Logan City Council in relation to Mayor Luke Smith.

Six CCC officers walked into council chambers on Monday just after 1pm, interrupting 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 on a big screen and were related to the CCC’s Operation Belcarra.

The meeting was told concerns were related to 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 council last year.
