DETECTIVES from Taskforce Maxima have raided homes at Susan River and Burrum Heads as part ongoing action against criminal gangs in the Wide Bay region.
The search warrants were carried out between January 13-18.
Addresses at Yandina, Golden Fleece, Avenell Heights, Bundaberg, Eulielah, Mount Maria, Fairymead and Burnett Heads were also subjected to warrants and resulted in police finding dangerous drugs including methylamphetamines, cannabis, including a small cannabis crop and steroids.
Police said a mobile phone frequency jammer, counterfeit money, a sum of cash, ammunition and a quantity of unlawful fireworks and drug paraphernalia were also located.
As a result, 13 people had enforcement action taken against them on 34 charges, including possession and production of dangerous drugs, unlawful possession of explosives, drug utensils, possession of counterfeit money and tainted property.
Detective Inspector Brendan Smith of Taskforce Maxima was pleased with the results from the joint operations.
"This deployment saw officers from the taskforce work with regional police to target the unlawful activities of criminal gangs and their networks," he said.
"Reinforced by the results of these recent efforts, we will continue to work together, conducting operations wherever these gangs operate.
"It is always a good result when we locate and seize dangerous drugs during these operations.
"The possession of counterfeit money and an electronic mobile phone jammer further demonstrates the sophistication and extent of their criminal activities."
