Warwick raids and tip-off lead to buried container
FOLLOWING search warrants executed on a Willowvale Road, Massie property near Warwick last week police have executed a further search warrant on the property today.
Detectives from the Warwick Criminal Investigation Branch, Homicide Cold Case Unit and State Drug and Serious Crime Illicit Laboratories Investigation Team (ILIT) used an excavator to search for a buried container on the property.
A container with a concealed hatch has been located and ILIT members using breathing apparatus are examining the contents of the container for further evidence of drug trafficking.
It is believed the container has been buried on the property for a number of years.
Detective Inspector Mick Dowie said that further information from the public resulted in the find.
"As a result of fresh information received from the public we have returned to the property to inspect a suspicious site and located a buried shipping container," he said.
"For the safety of investigators we have called upon the assistance of ILIT members to process the contents of the container. We are still assessing the contents,' he said.
Investigations are ongoing and there is no further information available at this time.
