Police bust Yeppoon drug lab

UPDATE 2.50pm: A Yeppoon man, 43, has been arrested and charged with a number of drug-related offences after police found what they believe to be a “reasonable-sized” amphetamines laboratory inside the garage of a Strow Street, Yeppoon, home.

The man will face the Yeppoon Magistrates Court on May 6 for charges including producing and possessing dangerous drugs and possessing property suspected of being used in the commission of a crime.

The house is under police guard and an Illicit Laboratory Investigation Team from Brisbane is on its way to Yeppoon to examine the equipment.
