Detectives charged 30 people with 125 offences including trafficking and supply of dangerous drugs, as well as armed robbery and weapons possession.

Close to 30 search warrants were carried out over two days as part of a 10-month operation which detectives say “will significantly disrupt” drug dealing in the state’s southeast corner.

“Our message is simple, if you want to be a part of this dangerous and criminal behaviour, we will locate you, we will target you, and we will take action,” Detective Acting Inspector Nicola Brown said.

During one of the searches in Beaudesert, south of Brisbane, police allegedly recovered methamphetamine, a shotgun, multiple tasers, crossbows and $6000 in cash on Monday.

Two men, aged 35 and 41, and a 23-year-old woman were taken into custody and charged with a range of offences including organised crime involvement relating to the men.

Quantities of cannabis and the drug GHB as well as a shotgun, ammunition, allegedly stolen cars and motorbikes, and about $50,000 in cash were also seized in the raids.
