Bay house raided in Task Force Hydra drug operation

A HERVEY Bay property has been raided by police as part of a large-scale operation targeting drug activity among outlaw motorcycle gangs.

Task Force Hydra boasted of shutting down an alleged methylamphetamine supply network after executing search warrants on 24 addresses across south-east Queensland on Thursday.

Operation Juliet Mission focused on people with links to the Bandidos outlaw motorcycle gang and Lone Wolf outlaw motorcycle gang chapters on the Sunshine Coast and north Brisbane.

Police seized drugs, $100,000 in cash and 15 firearms, but nothing was found at the Hervey Bay address.

Investigations are ongoing.
