Detectives from the Organised Crime Gangs Group have charged a medical doctor as part of a drug trafficking investigation where steroids and other dangerous drugs have been supplied to motorcycle club members.
Multiple search warrants were executed across Brisbane today, including two medical practices at Fortitude Valley and Chermside.
During the search, police identified and seized items including steroids, prescription drugs and a large sum of cash.
Detectives will allege that dangerous drugs were supplied without prescription by a doctor directly to bikies to facilitate the on sale of these medications for profit.
A 52-year-old man has been taken into custody and charged with trafficking and supply of restricted medications and is expected to appear in the Brisbane Magistrates Court tomorrow (September 23).
Detective Inspector Larissa Miller of the Organised Crime Gangs Group said the unregulated use of prescription drugs causes significant community harm to people who may be inclined to abuse them.
“We will be alleging that these drugs were supplied to gang members by a medical practitioner who knew they were going to be on sold within the community for profit.
“The Organised Crime Gangs group continues to target OMCG members and those who facilitate their offending, including people who hold professional positions of trust within our community,” Detective Inspector Larissa Miller said.
