Enforcement activities and convictions
- On 4 November 2012, investigators from the CMC’s criminal paedophilia team (Cerberus) and the QPS State Crime Operations Command's Taskforce Argos executed a search warrant at a Toogoom address where they allegedly found a large amount of child exploitation material. A man was arrested and charged with several offences including 1 count of using a carriage service to access child pornography, 1 count of using a carriage service to make child pornography available and 3 counts of possessing child exploitation material. He first appeared in the Hervey Bay Magistrates Court on 6 December 2012 where he had his matter transferred to the Brisbane Magistrates Court.
On 17 May 2013, he was further charged with 2 counts of an aggravated offence of making child pornography available on 3 or more occasions to 2 or more people (networking), 542 counts of utilising a carriage service for transmitting/making child exploitation material available and 12 counts of making child exploitation material. The further charges were laid following a forensic examination of items seized during the search conducted in November 2012.
- On 10 May 2013, a principle target of the CMC’s Operation Warrior – 34-year-old Allen Milos from Kangaroo Point – was sentenced in the Brisbane Supreme Court to 13 years imprisonment. On 10 April 2013, a Supreme Court jury found the defendant guilty of 14 charges relating to the production and trafficking of dangerous drugs. The defendant was first arrested in March 2010, when he was located in possession of drugs – including methyl-amphetamine, MDMA tablets, and GBL – as well as more than $47,000 in cash. He was released on bail, but was arrested again in August 2010 when he was located in possession of more than 3 kilograms of methyl-amphetamine. Mr Milos has been in custody since his second arrest. He will be eligible for parole in 2020.
