PHOTOS: Man accused of using stove top to cook meth
A HOME-MADE drug lab rigged up to the stove in a Svensson Heights house has been uncovered by detectives, part of ongoing operations to stamp out drug crime.
Bundaberg Criminal Investigation Branch Detective Senior Sergeant Michael Bishop said officers found the illicit drug laboratory last month during a search of a Cattermull St home.
"The assistance of specialised trained staff from Brisbane was utilised to make the situation safe and to forensically process the scene,” he said.
A 33-year-old Svensson Heights man will appear in Bundaberg Magistrates Court on December 21 charged with producing methylamphetamine, possessing relevant things and possessing things used in the commission of a crime.
As part of CIB's operations to address drug and property crime in the community, detectives have also recently charged two other men with drug related offences.
A 46-year-old North Isis man has been charged with producing and possessing marijuana, possessing a drug utensil and unlawful possession of an air rifle and shotgun.
A 60-year-old Svensson Heights man has been charged with supplying and possessing marijuana and possessing things used in connection with dangerous drugs and is to appear at the Bundaberg Magistrates Court on December 14. Both men will appear in court this later week.
