Four stolen motorcycles have been recovered and 118 people charged on 342 offences following a four-day police operation in Logan, south of Brisbane.
This follows similar police operations in Victorian and NSW last month where police seized 11 stolen motorbikes under investigations into motor vehicle theft and rebirthing.
In Queensland, Operation Romeo-Velodrome ran over two weekends (May 10-11 and May 15-16) and involved officers from Logan District Criminal Investigation Branch (CIB), Logan Tactical Crime Squad, General Duties police, Dog Squad, State Crime Command, Road Policing Unit, Forensic Services Branch, PolAir and Gold Coast Rapid Action Patrols (RAP).
The aim of the operation was to target drug-related crime specifically linked to methamphetamines.
During the operation police seized large quantities of methamphetamine, cocaine, MDMA, morphine, prescription drugs, cannabis, six firearms including shotguns and a handgun, in excess of 100 rounds of 9mm ammunition and $10,000 in cash.
Police also recovered four stolen motorcycles, two cars, a trailer, four camper trailers, a caravan, ride on lawnmower, air conditioning units, iPads, tablets, mobile phones and jewellery.

Witnesses are being sought after a 2004 blue Honda Accord sedan merged into a lane with a 2012 blue Harley-Davidson causing it to crash on the Logan Motorway at Springwood last Wednesday (November 7, 2018).
Forensic Crash Unit investigators have released this video as part of an appeal for information.
The crash happened about 4.50pm on the Logan Road on-ramp, towards the southbound lanes of the Pacific Motorway.
A 55-year-old Harley rider was hit when the Accord to merged into his lane. He remains in the Princess Alexandra Hospital in a serious but stable condition.
A 21-year-old Woodridge man “continues to assist with the investigation”.
The driver did not pull up after the Harley crashed at the side of the road.
However, a second motorcyclist pulled the driver over for a short conversation before riding on.
Police now want to speak with the second motorcyclist to continue investigations into the crash, or any other witnesses, particularly those with dash cam footage.
