CMC raid on Gold Coast cop's home allegedly finds drugs
In the latest blow for Police Commissioner Bob Atkinson, a Gold Coast officer has been stood down following a Crime and Misconduct Commission raid on his home.
The CMC has confirmed the raid on the constable's house at Burleigh Waters on Wednesday night, in which a quantity of drugs was allegedly found.
A CMC spokeswoman said the raid was not linked to Operation Tesco - the investigation mounted by the commission into alleged police misconduct on the Gold Coast.
Three officers have been stood down as a result of the operation and at least one is facing criminal charges.
