Pair were "cooking" in drug lab when Police kicked in door
COMMUNITY information has led police to uncover an extensive amphetamine production lab inside a Buddina home.
Two middle-aged men were arrested inside the home where allegedly they had been "cooking" the drugs yesterday morning.
Sunshine Coast Tactical Crime Squad issued the men with a search warrant following information from the community.
Sergeant Wade Lee said the lab was in the later stage of production.
"This is a mid-size clandestine lab," Sgt Lee said.
"It is the kind of style of lab we would see on the Sunshine Coast."
A 49-year-old man and a 50-year-old man were arrested and taken to Maroochydore station.
They were charged with three offences, including producing a dangerous drug, possession of relevant tools to produce dangerous substances and possessing relevant substances for the production of illegal substances.
The arrests followed a massive crackdown on Sunshine Coast drug operations earlier this month, when 15 people were charged on 41 drug-related offences.
In the eight-month operation, called Kilo Deacon, police executed 23 search warrants on residences and properties across south-east Queensland.
Yesterday's arrests were not related to the operation.
