The state crime command’s drug squad raided 10 residential premises and storage facilities in two days on the Gold Coast.

Five people were charged with 109 offences as police seized almost 600 cannabis plants worth $1,485,000 and 64 kilograms of dried cannabis valued at a little more than $426,000 were seized.

On Thursday, police searched a Pacific Pines address and found chemicals believed to be used in the production of cannabis.

Police charged two people in a Surfers Paradise unit with drug trafficking after allegedly finding a large quantity of cash and cannabis in a vehicle on the premises.
