Two men arrested following police raid in Mermaid Waters, Queensland seizing firearms and drugs

Two men have been arrested after police allegedly seized a number of dangerous firearms including a double-barrelled shotgun converted into a pistol.

Officers from the State Crime Command’s South East Region Major and Organised Crime Squad swooped on a Mermaid Waters home in Queensland on Tuesday.

Police footage shows officers searching the home as they allegedly located firearms in the oven and drugs in a zip lock bag.

The footage then cuts to show a bag filled with crisp-looking $50 notes as well as ammunition.

Police seized the items and arrested a 33-year-old-man and a 24-year-old man and charged with drug and weapon offences including unlawfully possessing weapons, possessing dangerous drugs, possession of tainted property and possession of explosives (ammunition).

The pair are due to appear in Southport Magistrates Court on Wednesday. 

Acting Detective Inspector Ian Galpin said officers will continue to work with the community to remove any dangerous weapons and drugs.   

‘The possession of dangerous drugs and firearms is a dangerous combination that presents significant risk to police, the community and the persons involved,’ he said.
