Teen, 16, arrested with 24 others in Cunnamulla drug bust

A 16-year-old boy is among 25 people arrested on 150 charges -- mostly related to supply dangerous drugs -- as part of a four-month anti-drug operation in Cunnamulla, in south-west Queensland.

Police raids targeted 27 properties on the weekend, leading to the arrest of nine people who will now face 11 counts of drug trafficking.

During the searches, officers allegedly discovered ice, cannabis, equipment for drug use, ammunition and mobile phones.

South West Police Detective Inspector Kerry Johnson said police had worked with the community to fight drug crime.

"We met with the local community and we gave them a commitment to address the drug issues in the area, and the arrests this weekend are the result of months of hard work.

"While the community and police will continue to work together, we are also looking at programs and education for the young people in the district to curb this type of behaviour," he said.

Some of those arrested include:

16-year-old Cunnamulla boy who will be dealt with under the provisions of the Youth Justices Act in relation to two counts of trafficking dangerous drugs and six counts of supplying dangerous drugs.

41-year-old Cunnamulla woman charged with one count of trafficking dangerous drugs and 15 counts of supplying dangerous drugs.

39-year-old Cunnamulla man charged with one count of trafficking dangerous drugs and 23 counts of supplying dangerous drugs.

32-year-old Cunnamulla man charged with one count of trafficking dangerous drugs and 28 counts of supplying dangerous drugs.

30-year-old Cunnamulla woman charged with one count of trafficking dangerous drugs and seven counts of supplying dangerous drugs.

32-year-old Cunnamulla woman charged with one count of trafficking dangerous drugs, supplying dangerous drugs and supplying dangerous drugs to a minor under 16 years.

She is due to appear in the Cunnamulla Magistrates Court on February 8.

Each of the other offenders, with the exception of the 16-year-old, are expected to face Charleville Magistrates Court on Monday.
