Police raid house: third suspected drug lab in three weeks

GLADSTONE Police have discovered a third suspected drug lab in three weeks, with an Emmadale Dr residence raided yesterday afternoon.

Members of the criminal investigation unit swooped on the New Auckland property at about 1.30pm.

Police said a crime scene had been established, with a group of specialised officers from Brisbane set to arrive in Gladstone today.

Five people were in the property at the time of the search, and were questioned at the scene.

A number of illegal items were identified in the property during the search.

Last month two people were arrested in relation to a drug laboratory in West Gladstone, and on Saturday another West Gladstone property was raided.
