“In total, this has been a very successful operation,” Det. Snr Sgt Peachey claimed on Thursday.

“We’re very confident that as a result of this, a large (alleged) syndicate within Rockhampton has been taken out.

“What is pleasing is that throughout the whole investigation we’ve been able to identify those (alleged) higher players rather than just the lower-end people.”
