Walligan and Childers raids lead to drug, weapon charges

POLICE have seized more than 75 mature cannabis plants and firearms after raids at Walligan and Childers.

A 51-year-old woman will face Hervey Bay Magistrates Court on February 20 charged with a series of offences, including possessing and producing dangerous drugs.

Police said they searched a Dundowran Rd property on February 1 at 3pm and found several marijuana plants growing.

Detective Senior Sergeant Nikki Colfs said the plants were up to 1m high.

"It was a considerably sophisticated system and there were quite a few plants," she said.

Two men were also arrested and charged after police allegedly found unregistered weapons and a drug crop at a Cordalba property.

Bundaberg Police Criminal Investigations Branch Officer in Charge Acting Detective Senior Sergeant David Tucker said detectives raided the property and allegedly found 75 mature cannabis plants as well as two unregistered firearms.

"As a result of the investigation, the two occupants of that property have been charged with drug and firearm offences," Det Snr Sgt Tucker said.

The pair have been given bail and will appear in Bundaberg Magistrates Court at a later date.
