CM – Drug import charges never before brought in Queensland

A Sunshine Coast man was charged with importing dried coca leaves to make cocaine, believed to be the first such allegation in Queensland.

A Sunshine Coast man is on trial next week for allegedly importing dried leaves of coca plants to make cocaine in Queensland.

The Courier-Mail believes it will be one of the first times a Queenslander will stand trial for importing the leaves to make the drug in the state.

Police carried out a search warrant on a property in Mons west of Buderim on May 19 and allegedly found a range of dangerous drugs and a small hydroponic facility.

A 32-year-old man was arrested and charged with eight offenses, including drug production, delivery of dangerous drugs and possession of dangerous drugs.

The coca plant used to make cocaine is an illegal substance in Australia and is placed in the same drug category as cannabis.

As part of the Powderkeg series launched this week, The Courier-Mail revealed that cocaine use in Queensland has tripled in the past four years, and that most of Australia’s cocaine has been imported from Colombia and Mexico.

Detective Senior Sergeant Bradley Phelps of the Drug and Serious Crime Group said the police were working with interstate and foreign counterparts to « disrupt the flow of cocaine into Queensland. »

« We will continue to target the individuals and syndicates involved in bringing these drugs to Queensland, » he said.

“And we will target the people in Queensland who distribute these drugs and cause massive harm to the community.
