A Bundaberg woman is among 19 people charged after police unravelled a drug trafficking ring in Queensland.

Detectives began investigating Operation Romeo Porcelain in Longreach, in March 2019.

Sergeant Brett Long says a tip-off from Crime Stoppers sparked the investigation.

“Overtime we were able to uncover a system of trafficking methylamphetamine that was purchased in the South East Corner and transported via a number of different methods to Longreach where a distribution network was in place," he says.

Police say they seized methylamphetamine, MDMA, cannabis and just over $9000 in cash, along with weapons, including a flick knife, knuckledusters, ammunition and an electric conductive device during the closure.

A total of 19 people have been charged with 174 offences, including a 42-year-old Moolboolaman woman.

She is due in the Bundaberg Magistrates Court in December on nine charges, including trafficking possessing and supplying dangerous drugs.
