Second drug lab found at house raided three weeks ago

GLADSTONE detectives have struck another clandestine drug lab, incredibly found in a house raided less than three weeks ago.

A search warrant was executed at the Carter St, West Gladstone home at 9.30am on Tuesday morning.

Two people were arrested and a 40-year-old male was charged with production of a dangerous drug.

Police located what they alleged to be a Category B (stored/used equipment or chemicals) clandestine drug lab as part of ongoing investigations.

Detectives had previously executed a search warrant at the same address on September 19, where a drug lab was also located.

The same offenders as the September 19 raid were again arrested on Tuesday.

The house was declared a crime scene and was guarded by police overnight as they waited for the Illicit Laboratory Investigation Task Force to arrive from Brisbane.

A man is due to appear in Gladstone Magistrates Court on Wednesday morning.
