MP applauds police for shutting down drug operation
POLICE officers have been applauded for their hard work to fight against the dangerous drug ice across the South Burnett.
Nanango member Deb Frecklington thanked the members of the Dalby-Burnett Patrol Group who had uncovered a total of 111 offenders, charged with a total of 695 offences.
"On behalf of my community, I want to thank our hard working police for their work in shutting down the ice supply chain," she said.
"Sadly it shows the devastation of ice and its grip on many regional communities."
Ms Frecklington said the LNP had announced a plan to give the police more resources to crack down on drug traffickers.
"We need more resources to stop these drugs being peddled to our kids," she said.
