Queensland police officer caught up in ecstasy raid
TWO Gold Coast police stations have been raided by the Crime and Misconduct Commission after a junior constable was allegedly caught up in a drug investigation.
CMC officers raided the Surfers Paradise and Burleigh Heads police stations yesterday morning after what were believed to be ecstasy tablets were found with a group of people which included the constable in Brisbane's Fortitude Valley at the weekend.
It was unclear whether the pills had been seized during a drug raid.
The Queensland Police Service refused to comment.
A CMC spokesman confirmed their officers and police Ethical Standards Command had raided "a number of premises in Brisbane and on the Gold Coast as part of an investigation into allegations of misconduct by police".
The Queensland Police Union also refused to comment.
