Police say they have smashed a drug syndicate on the Gold Coast .

Gold Coast police have smashed a million-dollar drug syndicate based at Burleigh on the Gold Coast.

The six-month operation ended with raids this morning at a storage shed, where police allege they found $1 million of ice, equivalent to 30,000 hits, hidden in hollowed out comic books.

It’s alleged the books were mailed from California.

The accused ringleader had allegedly made at least six trips to the United States since October to organise the deal.

Police initially pointed a firearm at the wanted criminals before switching to a Taser. Police commandeered a barge and closed in on the men who eventually gave up the chase.

He was today arrested and charged.

“He was obviously the main linchpin of the group,” Detective Inspector Brendan Smith said.

“He would bring it in and then distribute it out through other people.

“There’s no honour among thieves, they’ll give up their mother if they think it will save them.”

Operation Romeo Vigilant was launched by senior detectives after old-fashioned police work led to the raid.

“Every time we take a bit of this drug off the streets we have a win,” Det Insp Smith said.

Ten people are facing 40 charges over the international drug operation.

Further charges are possible with police looking into potential links with other criminal organisations.
