Antique treasures uncovered in Brisbane drug raid

Antique treasures uncovered in Brisbane drug raid Police have found a $150,000 stash of rare property allegedly stolen over a decade during a drug raid in east Brisbane. Among the loot was a 1950 camera, commemorative coins, jewellery and historical bank notes. Police suspect the antiques were stolen during a string of Brisbane robberies spanning a decade, and now hope to reunite the treasures with their rightful owners. The treasures were seized from a home at Wynnum, about 14 kilometres east of the CBD, late last month during a police raid. A 54-year-old woman and a 61-year-old man, who were living at the house, were arrested on drug-related offences.

The Melbourne driver was stopped on Sydney Rd, Campbellfield, after police caught her grey Jeep Cherokee travelling at 137km in a 80km zone on Monday.

The 38-year-old woman told police her husband had recently changed the car's speedometer from metric to imperial.

She also told officers she thought she had been travelling at the right speed limit, reported Perth Now.

However, the driver was charged $896.10 in towing costs and her Jeep Cherokee was impounded.

She is also expected to be charged with speed-related offences.
