Tom Threadingham

ROCKHAMPTON CIB detectives have swooped on nine properties across the city, seizing quantities of cannabis, methylamphetamines, cash and other property.

Detective Sergeant Nick Williams says 11 people face a string of charges.

He says about nine around the city, including a home in Frenchville's Hyde St, and south Rockhampton, were raided as a result from members of the public.

It's not believed the homes were part of a specific criminal ring.
