Police arrest 49 people after nine-month operation

FORTY-NINE people have been arrested from Brisbane and Ipswich following a nine-month police operation.

On Wednesday, police executed search warrants that ended with authorities to seize drugs including cannabis, meth ampethamines, prescription drugs and allegedly stolen property.

Acting Detective Inspector Gary Dixon said the operation, specifically targeting drug trafficking and supplying dangerous drugs, shows the commitment of police to keep drugs from users.

"The recovery of these drugs illustrates that the Queensland Police have no tolerance for illegal drugs in Queensland," he said.

"Many officers have put in long, hard hours to make this operation a success, and we want this to act as a warning to anyone who thinks they can produce and sell drugs. You will be caught and you will be charged if you are engaging in this behaviour in our community."

In a statement police confirmed 49 people have been charged with 160 offences including trafficking, producing, supplying, possessing and receiving dangerous drugs and a range of stolen property offences.

Investigations are continuing with more arrests anticipated.
