TWO young children were removed from a Walkervale home after police allegedly discovered a speed lab during a one-day drug blitz across the region.
Detective Senior Sergeant Joe Hildred said a 39-year-old woman was charged for allegedly allowing her home to be used for drug activity, while a 40-year-old man handed himself into detectives late this afternoon.
"He's made full admissions to being the person using the lab," he said.
Det Snr Sgt Hildred said the man was charged with producing dangerous drugs and possessing restricted items.
"Two young children were removed for the premises and are staying with relatives," he said.
"The Illicit Laboratory Criminal Investigation Team has been deployed from Brisbane to attend the address and process the items and liquids found."
Part of operation Chalk One, Det Snr Sgt Hildred said the Pitt St address was one of five homes searched across the region this morning.
"Bundaberg detectives executed raids on properties in Bargara, Innes Park, Moore Park Beach and inner Bundaberg suburbs," he said.
"As a result five people have been charged with eight offences in relation to possession of dangerous drugs and possession of drug utensils."
A 26-year-old male was charged with possessing dangerous drugs and drug utensils after a raid on a Ryan St address.
Det Snr Sgt Hildred said investigations were continuing into two marijuana plants which were seized from a Cycad Ct address at Moore Park Beach, as no one was home when police executed the warrant.
"It's a pleasing result which goes towards controlling the distribution of dangerous drug in the Bundaberg region," he said
