About 11.30am (Friday 27 November 2015), officers from Brisbane Water Local Area Command attended a hotel on Mann Street, after reports of suspicious items being located.
On arrival police entered a room and located small multi coloured candies believed to contain prescription medication. A search warrant was executed and the lollies, dispensers and two bags of a white substance, believed to be a prescribed medication was seized.
