QUEENSLAND Police have made what appears to be the state's biggest ever ecstasy haul after raids on properties across the Gold Coast.

Police had uncovering 1.5kg of pure ecstasy, 20 litres of liquid ecstasy, cannabis, speed, drug utensils, and more than $35,000 in cash after searching properties at Advancetown, Southport and Ashmore, Detective Inspector Gordon Thomson said.

The raids were the result of Operation Delta Enigma and would have a significant impact on ecstasy distribution on the Gold Coast, he said.

That's a bit vague...I wonder if they mean GHB or MDMA in some liquid solution?

$5m Gold Coast drug haul
March 31, 2005
news.com.au

A SUSPECTED drug cook was brought from overseas to produce ecstasy for a Gold Coast-based syndicate.

He was one of eight people taken into custody after police raided what is believed to be Australia's first ecstasy production laboratory in a Gold Coast hinterland hideaway.

Queensland Drug Squad detectives - assisted by government chemists and Australian Federal Police - swarmed on a rented bushland bungalow in the hinterland suburb of Gilston.

A bucket-full of MDMA (methylenedioxymethamphetamine) powder was discovered in a shed on the property, along with two containers of MDMA liquid - a precursor to tablet-form ecstasy.

Laboratory equipment had been set up ready for production.

Acting Detective Superintendent Gordon Thompson said initial findings indicated the combined MDMA seizure would equal 6kg of pure ecstasy, which would convert to 100,000 pills.

"It would have a street value of $5,000,000," he said.

"This is the first time we have encountered this method of producing ecstasy in Queensland, possibly Australia," he said.

However, he would not elaborate on the method except to say it was a departure from the usual way ecstasy was manufactured.

"We are very pleased and very fortunate that we stopped it from reaching the streets of Queensland. It is a significant seizure."

Supt Thompson said ecstasy was usually produced overseas and smuggled into Australia.

The production process was "extremely difficult" and required "specialist cooks", he said

Owners of the Gilston property were unaware the drug syndicate was operating out of the rented bungalow, police said.

Police also found $35,000 in cash when they raided a house in Ashmore. At another house in Southport, small quantities of marijuana and amphetamine were found.

Four men and four women were being questioned last night and are expected to appear in the Southport Magistrate's Court this morning.

$50 a pill. Man they are getting screwed royally at that price.
I wonder, do cops even know how much drugs really cost?
