Property of alleged drug kingpin seized in raids

A SUSAN River alleged drug kingpin has had restraining orders placed against his home, a motorbike and Chrysler 300C car after they were seized in police raids.

The court order is the latest in an ongoing saga which follows raids on the Susan River home in February which saw Dean Grant O'Donnell charged with drug trafficking and 13 other charges.

His fiancé Felica Djamirze, also charged with drug trafficking, has made national headlines after she was left with severe burns to her face and hands when a flash grenade went off during the raids.

The former beauty queen has threatened to sue Queensland Police Service for negligence which caused the injuries.

The property seized was all registered to All Fraser Towing and 4WD Retrieval which is owned by O'Donnell.

Police allege the property was purchased with the proceeds of crime.

O'Donnell was also ordered to provide a list of everything he owned, or had a financial interest in, in the last six years worth more than $5000.

The seizure comes after February raids which were the result of a more than 12 month long police sting and high level surveillance including bush cameras and audio recordings.

Police claim O'Donnell hid the drugs and guns in an icebox in Crown land backing onto his property.

About 2kg of ice and a number of firearms including a loaded gun were found on the property during the raid.

Hidden cameras were also installed inside the Susan River house, which police allege recorded O'Donnell, Djamirze and his brother Narayan Rodwell discussing a poor-quality batch of ice from a supplier.

Mr O'Donnell is accused of saying as the bad batch was coloured brown instead of white and was "wet", that customers would start calling him "Pepsi Max".

Inside the house, police allegedly found about $1600 cash, four Blackberry phones, two Samsung Galaxy phones, and two Apple iPhones.

Det Sgt McLeod said he found $2000 in a hidden box magnetically attached under the tray of a Holden Colorado found on the property.

O'Donnell, Djamirze and Rodwell will appear in Hervey Bay Magistrates Court on February 14.
